The X (exit) option on a tab should only appear when there are two or more tabs. In other words when one tab remains (after exiting all other tabs), the X exit on the tab should not appear. This forces the user to exit IE (a program, and not just a tab) as one would normally exit a MS application. As IE10/11 is now, using that last tab X forces the closing of IE itself, and this should not happen. The exit from IE should be by normal means. The way it is now, it is too easy to leave IE when unintended and wastes an unacceptable amount to time. The old IE8 had right. At the very least, throw up an "Are you sure want to exit IE" window to confirm exit from program.
