Is there a way to close a specific Chrome tab with a terminal command? I tried below commands:

  1. kill -9 <pid of Chrome tab>: Instead of closing a tab, it kills the tab ("He's dead Jim" message appears and tab remains)
  2. killall chrome: Closes all Chrome browsers open

No, there's no signal or commandline switch to close an individual tab. – Shawn Balestracci May 22 '13 at 18:49
You would need to use with the extension to do that. – Dan D. May 23 '13 at 2:12
