I can't tell from the linked article if they're completely removing those features or if they're just removing the menu items. I also use the "reopen closed tab" option (Ctrl-Shift-T) quite often, either after I accidentally close a tab and want it back, or sometimes I think I'm done with a tab/site and then a few minutes later I realize there's more I want to do there.
I'll definitely miss the feature if it's going away completely. But if it's just the menu item that is going away... I basically never use it.
Then again, I almost never use Chrome proper these days. Hopefully the Chromium-based offshoots I use (Brave and Vivaldi) will keep the features.
