Forget Googling or digging through your browsing history, all you have to do to recover that tab is hold down CTRL+SHIFT and press T. This will open the last closed tab. In fact, you could press this combination 10 times and it would open the last 10 closed tabs.
from chome spot! but i never knew that tip... but ! now i do!
No for any chrome browser this seems to be the short cut atm i am using a windows pc and i pressed CTRL+SHIFT and pressed T the last tab i closed opened up! so i would say all chrome browsers in general unless you have those keys short cuts changed.
