I often have say a fullscreen* window of Chrome open, for example, and a secondary one on the left half of my screen, and want to take notes in another app open on the right half of my screen. But when I tab between them, changing focus from the note taking app back to say Chrome, it will put all the Chrome windows on the foreground, blocking my view of the other app I have open.
Is there any setting to change this behavior to only put the most recently active window of a given app on the foreground?
I found this Window Stacking on OS X related question, but it's almost 10 years old and doesn't have a satisfactory answer for me.
*Not literally fullscreen, just maximized so it takes up all of the screen.
