[Bug 455241] Re: New windows steal focus


Still happening in Ubuntu 14.04. I'm on Sublime, so I open an app like
Chrome and while this app is loading, I'm go back to Sublime and
continue to write. So, after a while, Chrome loads, steal the focus and
before my brains know it, I'm typing the Sublime text on Chrome, leading
to a mess :P

This is very annoying because I open and close apps (or they open
dialogs automatically) very often, as well I write very often, and
because this random focus steal, I always have to check if I'm writting
on the right place, like a paranoid.

I'm already developed an ctrl+s like syndrome (you know, the one that
you write few words, save, then write more two or three words, save
again and so on). I have to write some words, so I stop and check the
focus, type more few words, check again, type more few words, ... This
is really annoying for all those who have fast fingers and who are
hardcore keyboard users.
