I see how that helps your particular use pattern - but it doesn't help
many other situations. When I'm playing some heavy-duty game - then
need to go and check my web-mail or my FaceBook or something - I'd like
the thing running in the "background" tab to use as little CPU/GPU time
as possible. It can only do that if there is some kind of notification
that it's hidden.
If we need to add some new mechanism - then it ought to be more general
than the flash approach.
