Proposal
when a different browser tab to the one you are viewing receives a new message you see a blinking tab as a notification of the new message
Justification
Just a small visual notification to allow help prevent missing messages ingame due to not realising chats had taken place
Motivation
Because I am stupid and get my slash commands mixed up and type into the wrong channel at times
Hi, as the title suggests I was wondering if we could implement a slight adjustment to the ingame chat channel window, so as to allow a visual notification of a new message, for a tab we are currently not viewing.

With the use of multiple tabs, it would be nice if we had a visual indication for when there are new messages in a separate tab your not currently viewing, this would allow us to have dedicated channels for each chat and enable it so we don't miss conversations by not realising that there had been conversations taking place, I know the normal work around is to add all chats to 1 window but this gets messy and confusing at times. not to mention typing the slash commands to write in the correct channel within the same window is clunky and I always do something to mess it up.

My solution to this is rather quite simple, when a different browser tab to the one you are viewing receives a new message you see a blinking tab as a notification of the new message.

I like the idea. It may not be a hugh priority, but would provide some QoL.
In regards to the slash commands - There are key bindings for each chat (spatial, group, guild etc). I know its not what your pv is for, but might help not messing up as often with responding till something better comes along
