When it comes to pinned tabs, I think it’s essential for the tabs to not close when a user hits ⌘ + W. I pin tabs to have them always open actively and passively. When pinned tabs are “closed” in Firefox and Safari, they passively remain in the pinned slot (discarted to save CPU), so I can quickly access them using ⌘ + 1/2/3/n. See GIF below.
I would really like that in Brave. Hopefully it’s a small fix. What do you all think?
