Here it is folks: The first beta of Version 2 of IE7 Open Last Closed Tab.

  1. Fixed the watching for “Alt+X” key combination causing random characters, when typing into IE, to be dropped. (“keyboard mistyping in IE after installed” issue listed on

  4. Added a toolbar button (fig. 1 & 2) that when clicked, opens a context-menu showing the previous tab titles (newest closed on top, URL shown on hover), the option to open the last closed tab, and the ability to clear the tab history.
