A mySql workbench tab can only be closed by clicking the small "x" button on the tab. When working with many tabs and needing to close a few quickly it is quite frustrating as a user needs to continuously move his/her mouse to the close button of the tab (the tabs do not have a fixed size, nor do they resize automatically like IE11 tabs do)

How to repeat:
Open a tab in Workbench, click the middle mouse button, nothing happens.

Suggested fix:
Let the middle-mouse button click on a tab close that tab and in doing so behave the same way users are used to when working with tabs in various popular browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Edge, Opera, etc)
