TabStop

TabStop is a SIMBL plugin, available in several different languages, that displays a warning when you attempt to quit or close a window in Safari that contains multiple tabs. Very handy, if you're used to keeping dozens of tabs around and you're tired of accidentally Command-Q'ing instead of Command-W'ing.

Ugh, so many times I've mistakenly pressed apple + Q rather than apple + W. No more! This app is wonderful

I did try ForgetMeNot and I didn't like how it always reopened my previous tabs. Unclosing tabs is cool, but I'd rather just not close them in the first place... which is why I wrote TabStop.

But it's worth noting that I've had several people tell me that they use both TabStop and ForgetMeNot at the same time. If you need a ridiculous amount of accidental tab-closing protection, that'd be the way to go.

If you like TabStop why don't give ForgetMeNot a try. It doesn't warn you, but it restores all open Safari tabs and windows when you restart Safari. Additionally it lets you unclose Tabs...

Gotta love SIMBL. It makes stuff like this possible :)

I've killed my other browser windows (usually minimized) several times by accident before this. Very handy.

You are very much welcome, blackjack75. Glad you find it useful.

I can't tell you how many times this saved my life! Previously I very often happened to press that Command-Q intneionnaly (because of the proximity with Command-W).

Thanks for this one!
