When I click on an URL in kmail I expect the URL to open in Chrome.
This happens without problem. The behavior I do not like is that it
automatically changes to Chrome. I have looked into Kmail and tried to
through the chrome preferences but I do not see a possibility to change
this behavior.
I would like to decide when I go to Chrome and when to leave KMail.
Somebody knows where this behavior can be set?

What do you mean it automatically "changes to chrome"?
Are you one of those guys that run all your applications in full screen
mode, and then wonder why you can only see one at a time? ;-)

Delayed switching to launched tasks is not a function of the emailer
or any other application.

If using KDE, you can control this in:
system settings (aka personal settings in some versions)
Workspace Appearance and behavior
Window Behavior
Focus tab,
Focus Stealing prevention set to HIGH

I am running 4 desktops in KDE. Number one for kmail, number two for skype,
number 3 for chrome and 4 as playground.
So if I am working on my kmail and see an URL that I want to see I cannot
my kmail work but the desktop changes to Chrome is instantly.
Can this behavior be controlled by something like Focus tab or focus stealing
prevention? Have never looked into these two functions.
