There are number of applications that I use that take several seconds( some take 10 seconds or more !), to open, or , since I have multiple displays, one I want to open in the left display while I am typing in the application in the right display, perhaps for reference.
However, each application steals focus from the application I’m using when it starts, which interrupts my work. Is there a way to prevent this behavior on a global ( all applications, all displays, all spaces ) level?
I did some research online and found many instances of people asking this question, but not a single solution. I did discover a few people who said that macOS once upon a time did allow applications open without stealing focus, but that was pre-2011.
So, is there a way via system preferences, command line utilities, or 3rd party applications, to tell macOS “hey, I’m working over here, don’t automatically switch me to another application!” ?

Each display has it’s own spaces.
