Simulate 'keep browser open when the last tab is closed' behavior.

What is TabReturn?
TabReturn is an Edge browser extension that ensures your browser remains open, even when the last tab is closed. It works by ensuring there are always at least two tabs open; this means if you close down to one, a new tab automatically appears. You can choose between having the second tab as a normal or a pinned tab. Implement this add-on to avoid accidental closing of your browser when closing the last tab.

Keep browser open when the last tab is closed. On some browsers it is possible to keep the browser open when the only tab is closed; this extension simulates that behavior. It does this by making sure there are at least two tabs at all time; if the number of tabs drops to one, a new tab is created (either a normal or a pinned tab depending on the condition).

chrome商店里的一堆last tab在启动增强模式下要么无效,要么启动浏览器的时候会闪屏一下,这个是最好用的。
