Description

If you open a webpage in a new tab then the focus isn't set to it. Unfortunately
you need to mouseclick every time into the browser window to close it. I would
like to have the focus configurable (focus follows pointer, focus on click,
focus on caption select) like in every windowmanager on X platform does.

`If the only rationale for your feature is that other window managers have it, 
or that you are personally used to it, or something like that, then I will not 
be impressed.' -- <http://cvs.gnome.org/lxr/source/metacity/README>

The window managers used by ~97 percent of GUI users do not have the option you 
are requesting. By all means file a bug to change the current focusing behavior 
if you think a different behavior would be better, but there's no point adding 
an option which only ~0.5 percent of people will both understand and care about 
just for the sake of it. Wontfix.
