IE Open Last Closed Tab

By MuvEnum Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review Staff Feb 27, 2009

Despite its inelegant name, IE7 Open Last Closed Tab, works like a charm. Its name exactly describes this IE plug-in's functionality.

If you close a browser tab, then realize you need something more from that now-closed site, IE7 Open last Closed Tab comes to the rescue. You can now press Alt-X and instantly reopen the site in a new tab. The program responded quickly when tested and opened 15 closed tabs in a row during one test. We also liked the tools Quick Tab Style View. The view which is similar to IEs Quick Tabs, but instead of displaying thumbnails of IEs open tabs, this tools feature displays thumbnails of the tabs you've closed. Clicking a thumbnail reopened the closed site in a new tab.

This free plug-in is a handy addition to IEs tools. Anyone who works in multiple tabs will appreciate the ease it offers in reopening closed browser tabs.

Developer's Description

IE Open Last Closed Tab is an extension for Internet Explorer that makes "Alt+X" re-open the last closed tab (Web site). This is very useful when you accidentally close a Web site that you didn't mean to close. Instead of trying to find it in your browser history, you hit "Alt+X" and it automatically re-opens in a new tab.

It also supports a Quick Tab Style View, shown when you hit "Alt+Q", which shows you screenshots of the websites you've previously closed (like the built-in IE Quick Tabs (Ctrl+Q)). You can then click on the thumbnail of the Web site you want to open in a new tab. Version 4.1 removes the product bar.
