In most traditional user interface designs this function is
much more explicit, typically OK (commit) or Cancel.  In addition,
the browser generally always provides a close button, and the
user of a browser should have learnt that, so shouldn't be
expected to learn a new version of it for every site they visit.

Even more than with local applications, the user can always abort
a window even if you try and prevent their using standard controls.

(The only icons I've noticed for OK and Cancel are slightly curvy
green ticks and red crosses.)
