Valuable software! The 1-second delay is a bit too long for my taste, but entering defaults write com.dteoh.SlowQuitApps delay 500 in the shell for ½ a second is easily done. Accidentally quitting a software doesn't happen often, but it's annoying every time, especially when you have added the Quit menu to Finder.

A crazy simple solution to prevent you from accidentally closing an application, a rarely experienced problem but you'd wonder why it wasn't already built into the os. This app is next to invisible with no menulet/dock icon, unless you press cmd q of course when a circle will appear on your screen and quickly fills until you release both cmd and q keys. The amount of time you get is configurable by a terminal command found here https://github.com/dteoh/SlowQuitApps#changing-default-delay Activity monitor is your friend should you ever want to quit the app but I don't see why you would
