Ctrl+W is the shortcut to close the current document or tab in many applications. I don't know where it originated (at a guess, Mac), but it's become a standard in most major environments, including Gnome, KDE, OSX and Microsoft Office. Mnemonic: W is next to Q on QWERTY keyboards; Ctrl+Q is for quit, and Ctrl+W is for a lesser form of quitting. Some ...

It's actually a default set by GTK2 (the widget toolkit used by Chromium, as well as many other programs). The default is determined in gtk/gtkpapersize.c, function gtk_paper_size_get_default. In order of preference, it gets its paper size from: nl_langinfo, on systems where that can return paper size. AFAIK, Linux/glibc is not one of those, so this step ...


I think Chromium sets the default paper size based on your current locale settings. If you start it from terminal with some euro LC_PAPER setting, e.g. LC_PAPER=fr_FR.utf8 chromium or LC_PAPER=en_GB.utf8 chromium it should default to A4 when Printing to File.


Starting at Chrome 35, NPAPI plugins are no longer supported (that includes Java). It started with Linux, but apparently all other platforms will suffer that change eventually. All you can do for now is: Use Firefox whenever you need Java. Hope Oracle releases a PPAPI version of its java plugin.
