Sometimes in my haste to close tabs, I have accidentally closed tabs which I still want.

How do I restore a browser tab which I have accidentally closed?

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

Can you specify which of the browsers you are actually interested in? – jonsca Mar 27 '14 at 11:20

Type Ctrl+Shift+T to restore the last closed tab. You may do this for several tabs closed, restoring them in reverse order they were closed. I don't know the limit, but it is greater than 15.
