What is Last Tab Keeper?

"Last Tab Keeper" is a functional Chrome extension designed to automatically create a new tab when the last one is closed. This smart tool ensures your chrome browser remains open by taking over this small but crucial operation, especially when the last tab isn’t blank. While it aims to enhance productivity and save time, it preserves Chrome's default behavior to quit when a blank last tab is closed. Importantly, it respects user privacy and does not collect history data.
