Scraping in Background making it difficult to use other programs

Hello - I have a 3-tier deep scraper that opens a URL in the background, and, in doing so, changes the “program focus” on my computer, making it very challenging to work on other things while the scraper is working. Has anyone else experienced this / gotten around it? As an example, if I am in the middle of typing here, when a new URL opens in the background, the computer thinks I’m on the other tab & my typing is then applied to the other URL & I have to constantly switch tabs back to this one

Hi @parker, I’m sorry about this!
