When I try to install Quick Note, I get a notice that Quick Note can access ANY of my data. Since I use web mail (gmail) can access all my mail, as well as my passwords (from chrome) as well as my browsing data, cookies, etc. Wouldn't it be easier to send them an email with my SSN, mothers maiden name, VISA number, and bank account numbers. That way I can insure they don't transcribe anything?

Does Ctrl+Shift+T do the same. Repeatedly using the combination opens up the closed tabs in the reverse order of their closing. Best of all this works with IE and FF as well.

I'm generally not into a lot of extensions, but in addition to those mentioned, I'll add Google Voice, and IE Tab.

AdBlock blocks those annoying ads and popups/popunders. Works great and is custom configurable. Cant live without it anymore... give it a try!

Undo close is just a right click over any tab --> Reopen Closed Tab. We don't need an extension for that. Chrome also has, standard, a Recently Closed list, under the History menu.

Then again, Opera always had that as a simple undo.
