BBO is very aggressive in timing me out when I browse another browser tab while waiting for the next hand to be dealt.
Frequently, there are long waits (several minutes).
I navigate away from the BBO tab, and within a very short period of time (less than a minute sometimes) when I get back to the BBO tab, I see that I was timed out for the next hand that just started.

Please provide an audio alert or some other solution to avoid being booted due to not being on the BBO tab when the next hand is started.

BBO has yet to acknowledge that there is any problem related to browsing another tab, so don't hold your breath.

Attach a 2nd monitor(or four...)! Use an old/discarded one. Windows handles it well & I presume Mac as well.
