IE 8 will do that, IE9 you can close one tab at a time.

what version of ie. the best way of closing the current tab is to click on the x in the tab not the x at the top right of the browser. when you click to close the browser are you not given the choice to close current tab?

I agree with IPR512 and this is most likely a changed setting in IE.
