Chrome Annoying X’es

Does anyone know how to change the limit so these X’s ONLY appear on the active tab, or on full size tabs?

It is SO often I quickly click a tab, just to find out that I hit the X, and then need to reopen the tab.

I have been looking and googling for a setting for this.

I can not really imagine any common scenario where I would like to point out a tab and close it, without selecting it first. Of course I can academically think one up, but I really find it much more a pain in the neck than a useful feature.
