Browser wars are probably not over, despite MS now using Chromium as Edge's rendering engine...but I think we've reached a point where it's the small things that matter.

Case in point:

When you have multiple tabs opened in IE (yes, IE) and close one, the next one before it momentarily resizes itself so its Close button is repositioned right under the mouse cursor...so if you want to quickly close the current and previous 2 tabs, you can quickly click the mouse button without moving the actual mouse. If you close a tab then don't do anything else, the remaining tabs will then resize themselves to something reasonable after a second or two.

None of the other browsers I've tried do that (and granted, I don't spend a lot of time trying out different browsers or extensions). If I close a tab, I have to move the mouse to reach each tab's Close button.

[Edit]

Granted, you can close tabs from left to right without moving the mouse, but new tabs generally appear to the far right, so as I'm backtracking through my current browsing session, I tend to close tabs from right to left...
