Some of the commenters there are hilariously dismissive of the chip, as if SiFive's reached the zenith of their design.

2 The real savages are the people who don't use a hotkey for 'reopen closed tab'.

3 I'll admit I didn't even know about "reopen closed tab" until today, but I don't use Chrome on desktop anymore anyway, and I'm in the process of migrating to Firefox on Android as well.

4 Also, it looks like FF has "Undo Close Tab" on the context menu, both when you click on a tab and when you click on the blank part of the tab bar.  So I guess that's nice to know.

5 I find that BBC article about inhalers *fascinating* in that someone would, with a straight face, advocate people with *asthma* switching from an inhaler that blows the medicine into your mouth with one that requires you to take a deep breath to pull the medicine into your mouth.

6 Safari has long had "undo closed tab" bound to Command-Z. There are times I've wished it would handle closed multi-tab windows as well.

7 Of course, that does you no good if your browser uses the default "Exit browser after last tab is closed" behavior. Firefox at least has a hidden option to turn that off, but I had to get a chromium extension that opens a hidden tab to keep the browser from exiting.

8 Yes, well, Safari has much worse defaults than that one. I'm looking at you, Mr. "Open 'safe' files after downloading" (and yes, the quotes around safe are actually in the description of this "feature").

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
