As far as I'm aware, currently Chromium v14  implements a very useful minimal feature that ultimately places a press duration threshold on the shortcuts for Quitting the browser: Command/Ctrl-Q. This ultimately acts as a preventative measure for accidentally closing the window when using keyboard shortcuts, such as the case for incidentally hitting Q when one meant to hit W (Close Window). The method at which this is detailed to the end-user is via a visible toaster alert that simply indicates: "Hold ⌘Q to Quit", or Hold Control+Q to Quit". I would love to see this minimal feature added to the Firefox product in the future. Currently testing this on Chromium 14.0.805.0 (90675)

If this happens, *please* hook it to a pref. This would drive me absolutely crazy.
Isn't there a risk that pressing and holding Ctrl+Q will kill other programs as well if the computer is fast and the user is slow?
There exists a similar implementation request: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=677702
This is more or less a duplicate of bug 565567. And a WIP patch for this was worked on in bug 550559. There are too many bugs about this issue :)
