Where is the logic? Open new tab, so right becomes more important.

You open page A.
You open links B-N on new tabs.
You quickly read them.
You can close all at once.

Sill, they should change it to 'close tabs to the left'.

This isn't logical.

>>51540476
But new tabs open on the right side, anon.

My left most tabs are ones that are always open. If there's ever a time that I'd want to close all tabs on a particular side of another tab it would be to the right. For example if I wanted to quickly research something I'd open a new tab, which would be on the right, and do a Google search, then open some of those search results in new tabs which would also be on the right. Then at the end of my research session I could right click on the tab left of the search tab and close all the ones to the right of it. In practice I just close them individually starting from the search tab (the ones on the right slide to the left so the "x" is always in the same place, then when I move the mouse the tabs resize) but the right click option would be handy if I ended up opening a lot of results.

these are the new tabs, hence the more important tabs, those tabs you might want to check out later. So why would I want to close those?

>these are the new tabs, hence the more important tabs
maybe for you.
not for me usually.
>>
>>51540593
So this option isn't really that useful for you. What I do now is, drag my important tabs to the left so I can close everything on the right (+/- 9 tabs open).
>>
Just add one option for right and one option for left
>>
when i clean up my tabs, i do so by holding ctrl, then tapping tab to cycle through them, and hitting w instead to close ones i want to close

My man, protip right there.

>>51540835
don't forget you can cycle backwards with ctrl+shift+tab (so feel free to go fast and just back up if you go past one)
and ctrl+shift+t to undo closing a tab

It's useful, I just don't mind taking the few extra seconds to close the tabs one by one.

I typically have 50+ tabs open spread across 4 windows. The left most of the two on my main monitor are sites that I always have open (Facebook, a forum, and some 4chan catalogs on one, Youtube sub page on another) and anything to the right of those can vary. As I don't bulk close tabs with the right click option I also don't worry about having tabs all the way on the right that I'll keep open for a long time, but "research mode" is always rightmost.

>>51540814
I know, but either way a button has to be pressed per tab. I have the dexterity to hit the "x" and using left click means I don't have to move my finger. It does come in handy when I get to a certain amount of tabs and the "x" disappears until I click on the tab though.
