Prevent Accidental Quit in Google Chrome

For as long as tabs have been a part of web browsing, I’ve been a frustrated keyboard junkie: Command-W (closing the tab) is a fraction of an inch away from Command-Q (quit the browser).

This minor tweak has saved my tabbed browsing session countless times.
