   <div class="etabs-buttons"></div>
<div class="etabs-views"></div>

const TabGroup = require("electron-tabs");
let tabGroup = new TabGroup();
    title: "server",

Hi, you can addEventListener for close event to the webview and then close the tab.

const tab = tabGroup.addTab(
    title: "Electron",
    src: "./demo.html",
    visible: true,
    active: true,
    webviewAttributes: {
        allowpopups: true,
tab.webview.addEventListener('close', () => t.close())
