A Quick Way to Close Your Browser
Use the following key combo: CTRL Shift Q
This worked in Chrome, Avast Secure Browser and Firefox
It didn't work in Opera, Vivaldi or Edge

ALT+F4 closes the active window - since this is a windows convention I guess that should work for all browsers.

There's a difference between closing the active window and totally closing the browser. :)

David's suggestion works fine for Edge and other browsers, gives the popup "do you wish to close all tabs"

Personally I fine the quickest way to close your browser is to click the X at top of page ;D

A strange light phenomenon last night.

Since the mountains are to my east, that kind of color is usually
seen at sunrise.

I was in Albuquerque, NM yesterday for a Dr. appointment
and got there just in time to catch a glimpse of this.

Considering this was in Albuquerque, that hot air balloon looks awfully lonely.  Isn't it Albuquerque that has the massive balloon festival ?

The Balloon Fiesta was during the beginning of October. This was a local operator.
@Asyn, we don't hunt balloons or baboons here. :)
