How can I close a selected tab by double-clicking on the tab header in Google Chrome?

The extension Double-click closes tab only works on the page itself - not the tab.

Use Chrome Toolbox (by Google) and check "Double click on a tab to close it".

I have no this option after installing plugin on Chrome for MacOS X. But on screenshot I have saw it... Why? – Altaveron May 9 '12 at 13:27
@Altaveron: tested ! It's not available for MAC at the moment I think – nXqd May 9 '12 at 14:15
@Altaveron: It says in the "Details" for the plugin that this functionality is not available on Mac and Linux. – Daniel Andersson May 9 '12 at 14:58
Is it me, or can this extension no longer be installed in Chrome? I click on Add to Chrome, all goes well but it just doesn't install. Anyone else? – GTCrais Mar 4 '15 at 23:44
