Overview

Prevents a tab from being closed accidentally

Adds a padlock icon that allows toggling each tab's lock/unlocked state. When a locked tab is being closed, a confirmation dialog which allows preventing the tab from closing, is displayed. 📣 IMPORTANT: after locking, some interaction with the page is required for it to work. So you need to, for example, click anywhere on the page after locking to actually prevent the tab from being closed. This is how Chrome works.

Doesn't work. Yes I "interacted" with a open tab.

Hi, Ivan. Was your interaction to click somewhere on the page? Which website did you try it on? Maybe other extensions are conflicting with Lock Tab, can you try in Incognito mode? You're welcome to file an issue in https://github.com/gabrielmaldi/chrome-lock-tab/issues and I'll gladly look into it.

Does what I need it too. Stops pinned tabs from changing pages when I forget to switch tabs before typing something in the address bar.

So far works fine with me. I'm listening to Naxos music and going through my online RSS feeds---two sites which I often close by mistake. App is keeping both open with a warning screen if I try to close them.
