How to close unmodified tabs when opening a new one?

There is a feature on Sublime and VSCode that consists on: When you open a file in a new tab but you don't modify it, that tab closes when you open a new one. If you don't want that tab to close, then you hit `command+s` so it remains open.

On phpStorm and WebStorm, when you open a new file even if you don't modify it, it remains open when you open a new file.

Any ideas on how to get that functionality on phpStorm and WebStorm

there is no such option... Please vote for to be notified on any progress with this feature.
You can use View/Quick Definition (Ctrl+Shift+I in default keymap) to preview the file without opening it in editor.

You can also try playing with editor tabs preferences (Settings | Editor | General | Editor Tabs), enable Close non-modified files first, for example.
