Another Chrome tip

In Firefox, if you accidentally click the X to close the window, it gives you a popup asking if you want to close all the tabs that you have open. This was very convenient to me because I often accidentally click that X when closing a popup window. When I started using Chrome, it doesn't ask if you're sure, it just closes the window. There's a workaround for this:

Open this page, and pin the tab (I make it my home page so I don't have to keep opening it every time I use Chrome.) Whitelist the page in your ad blocker, or it won't work, as it uses Javascript and ad blockers will block it. At least Adblock Plus does. Then, if you accidentally click the X, you get a popup asking if you want to leave the page. Works like a charm and saves me a little grief:

But that's a good looking truck. Part of a truck, rather.
