ctrl-F4 is used to close documents in mdi things (at least in ms-win), so
ctrl-F4 should close the currently visible tab in browser. This would alleviate
bug 101475, too.

I don't want to annoy anyone... but it's CTRL-W in Galeon, Opera and Netcaptor
(windows). It closes the current tab, and only closes the window if the tab is
the last one.

I can live with CTRL-F4, but I believe everyone is more used to CTRL-W...
Pedro: As I understand it, both Ctrl-F4 and Ctrl-W are accepted shortcuts for
closing a child window. Of course, Ctrl-F4 has been implemented, but that
doesn't preclude Ctrl-W.

In fact, I think Ctrl-W is being worked on, but I can't find the bug number at
the moment. Hopefully hyatt can clarify the situation :).

Yes, ctrl+w is going to close tabs too.
