Sometimes you need to leave your computer, perhaps at short notice, and you’ve already built up a number of open tabs. If you don’t have Google Chrome configured to carry on where you left off when opening a new session, then closing the browser will lose those tabs and force you to remember and re-open them later to continue working.
