$chrome = ShellExecute("C:\Users\Mystogan\Desktop\Jordan - Chrome.lnk")
ProcessWaitClose($chrome, 10)

or an alternative to close all major browsers author was guinness i think

_BrowserClose()

Func _BrowserClose()
    Local $aList = 0
    Local $aProcesses = StringSplit('iexplore.exe|chrome.exe|firefox.exe|safari.exe|opera.exe', '|', $STR_NOCOUNT) ; Multiple processes
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aProcesses) - 1
        $aList = ProcessList($aProcesses[$i])
        If $aList[0][0] > 0 Then ; An array is returned and @error is NEVER set, so lets check the count.
;~         _ArrayDisplay($aList)
            Local $bIsProcessClosed = False ; Declare a variable to hold a boolean.
            For $j = 1 To $aList[0][0]
                $bIsProcessClosed = ProcessClose($aList[$j][1]) ; In AutoIt 0 or 1 can be considered boolean too. It's like a bit in SQL or in C, where 1 and 0 means true or false.
                If Not $bIsProcessClosed Then ConsoleWrite('CLOSE ERROR PID: ' & $aList[$j][1] & @CRLF)
            Next
        EndIf
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>_BrowserClose

I put this piece of code together with a timer to shut down the browser but I'm not sure the ProcessWaitClose is working correctly.

 

Global $aTimes[5] = [100, 200, 300, 400, 500] ;Check;

$iTimer = TimerInit()
While 1
      sleep(1000)
      If TimerDiff($iTimer) >= 1 * 1 * 1 Then
         $chrome = ShellExecute("C:\Users\Mystogan\Desktop\Jordan - Chrome.lnk")
         Sleep(1000)

         If True Then
             ProcessWaitClose($chrome, 10)
             ExitLoop
         EndIf
   EndIf
WEnd

I dont know much about timerinit but

where is this used in the script?

Global $aTimes[5] = [100, 200, 300, 400, 500] ;Check;

nothing else calls it further down

And dont forget you have a 10 second wait on the 

ProcessWaitClose($chrome, 10)

if its just a straight close it maybe better with

ProcessClose($chrome)

Just a simple way of benchmarking

I did some more research and a lot of people were saying the ProcessWaitClose was pretty tough on the CPU usage so I decided to just use a Send("!{F4}") command as an alternative solution. If anyone found this useful then and wanted to expand this then you could implement a For Loop to check whether a webpage existed and if it returns True then it would do a Send F4 Command and close the entire web broswer. Thanks for the help guys and I appreciate all the support on the forums.

Global $aTimes[5] = [100, 200, 300, 400, 500] ;Check;

$iTimer = TimerInit()
While 1
      sleep(1000)
      If TimerDiff($iTimer) >= 1 * 1 * 1 Then
         $chrome = ShellExecute("C:\Users\Mystogan\Desktop\Jordan - Chrome.lnk")
        sleep(1000)

         If True Then
             Send("!{F4}")
             ExitLoop
         EndIf

      EndIf
WEnd

By the way, that is my function above. The comments are pretty much a big give away.
