I’d like to suggest these two features:

Minimize on close: would minimize to tray when hitting the close button. This will help clumsy people like myself who hit the wrong button too often. Exiting the program would be done via File->Exit (or Ctrl-Q). I know the close button is there for a reason, but IMO this type of software benefits from not allowing exiting the program by closing the window.

Start minimized: would help to start the program at Windows startup.

Thanks for this great tool

I try to avoid any problems with the close button by warning that there are snipes outstanding, if there are. If there aren’t, there’s no real issue with closing the app usually. My preference is to do what the user appears to be asking for; I hate it when programs think they’re smarter than me. :) File-sharing software and IM software both often fail to close when I tell them to close, and that bothers me.

Start minimized is definitely a potential feature; I’m not a fan, but I know a lot of others are.
