Imagine you have 3 tabs A B C and the focus is on B. Closing the tab with ^W
moves the focus to A instead of C. I think that the latter would be more natural
as it is similar to the behaviour of the delete key in editors.

Example situation: On a newsticker page, you open every news that you are
interested in with the middle mousebutton. You cannot read the news in the order
you opend them if you use ^W to close the tabs. (you have to close a tab and
move the focus to the next one each time)

I agree with the reporter that this is more natural.  Ex: reading a
message thread, you open-in-new-tab the replies in the thread, one
by one.  Then, to read them in the order in which you opened them,
you have to continually forward-peddle to get to the next message
after closing the message you just read.

FWIW, the focus moves right if the leftmost tab is closed.
