I have two browser tabs open (1 and 2). I’m viewing tab 1 and I long-tap a link to open it in a new tab. A new tab is opened with the linked address. I check it out and then close the tab.

What I expect: to be taken back to where I came from (tab 1). What happens: I’m taken to tab 2.

Request: When the user closes a browser tab, switch to the tab that was last viewed before it.

Yes, good suggestion! Other tab issues to be fixed:

  • Open links from other apps in a new tab, do not overwrite the one with the highest number
  • When going back on a tab and there's no more pages to go back to, close the tab and go back to the last tab viewed before it.

Separate questions must already exist for these issues. Your suggestion complements it well.
