I have gotten used to relying on Opera's tab recycle bin feature to reopen closed tabs. However, earlier today, I found myself accidentally closing a tab in Google Chrome, and what's more I had an unfinished forum comment which I had worked on for 20 minutes in said tab. When I saw no recycler icon in the tab bar and no obvious feature in the preferences or options sections, I panicked. However, I relaxed a couple of minutes later when I found that the keyboard short-cut CTRL + SHIFT + T that I use in Opera also did the same thing in Chrome; i.e., it recovered my closed tab with all my form data intact.
Hooray for Opera. Hooray for the chap who thought this up.
