I upgraded to Chrome Version 23.0.1271.64 and Command + w is now closing the active window instead of closing the active tab only. Is there a "hidden" shortcut for closing the active tab only?

Interesting. Command + W closes the active tab for me. Note that Shift + Command + W closes the active window. –  bassplayer7 Nov 22 '12 at 3:29

Ok, I just needed to restart the computer. The keyboard mappings are now working as expected.

Really strange. I faced this issue and just did what you said. Works good again. –  Sufian yesterday

Just tried with the same version and Command+W closes just the active tab. Maybe you installed something the re-mapped the keyboard shortcuts (such as an extension)?

This…isn't really an answer. Things like these should (as far as I'm concerned) usually be posted as comments (like this one). The question itself is rather hard to answer; though if you knew of “a "hidden" shortcut for closing the active tab only”, you could post that as an answer. –  Blacklight Shining Nov 23 '12 at 16:34
