And how is a titlebar icon a bigger target than the "x" button in the
tab? It isn't.
Besides, there has been a easy way to close a tab. I've been using it
ever since IE7. Just click on it with the middle mouse button. The
only caveat is that you define the middle button to be a middle button,
not Enter, Esc, or some other function.
And then there is the Ctrl+W keyboard shortcut to close the current
tab. Or Ctrl+Alt+F4 to close all tabs other than the current one.
So you need more than the "x" tab button, middle click, Ctrl+W, and
Ctrl+Alt+F4 to close tabs? If you do, go whine to Microsoft. It's
just us users here.

Unlike cheapskate consumers that won't pay a dime for support,
corporations pay thousands for service contracts or buy support tickets
from Microsoft. And, of course, Microsoft never listens to those
paying customers, uh huh.
And they provide their Communities at their cost (which pretend to be
forums by usurping Usenet although now some are disconnected from
Usenet and really forums). But perhaps there aren't enough users of
Microsoft's webnews-for-dummies interface to go voting on "suggestions"
(which, like this one, are just whines) to elevate their priority for
consideration to get cultivated by Microsoft.
And they provide https://connect.microsoft.com/
as their own cost to
let users provide feedback for their products.
And, of course, they waste all those resources coding and developing a
product without any concern about the wants of their users for a
product that generates them no revenue. Maybe if Google were to dump
$50M to the "IE Team" like they did to Mozilla then we'd be seeing a
version of Chrome with IE overtones and you'd have a whole different
set of complaints.

You want Microsoft to copy some other vendor's product behavior and
then you complain they should come up with something new. Make up your
You expect different vendors producing different products to make them
all look the same and yet somehow be innovative and new. Uh huh. Pick
the product that has the behavior you like. After all, it's not like
you actually have to pay for any of these free web browsers.
> The best they can do is to copy ideas from other companies (eg Apple).
Oh, the definition of "new" is to copy. If a program behaved exactly
the same as another one, there wouldn't be different programs, would
there? They'd all be the same program. Then you would be whining
about Microsoft pirating other vendors' software. Of course, everyone
should be expending their lives to provide you with free products that
kowtow to your every wish. Aren't freeloaders wonderful.

There, there. Feeling better now after venting?
