I am running Lineage OS Oreo and as an example the default browser opens all web browser windows as seperate processes/windows. There is no option to change this that I could find, but it actually seems to run better like this with less slow downs. I believe they are running in separate processes or threads. Is there a way to get recent apps for only that process maybe? I want to see the pictures and not just a list of the past windows.

  • "Individual tabs in recent list" is a feature of the default Browser (Jelly), and actually seen as a perk by many LOS users (not me though). Just use a different browser instead. – Andy Yan Mar 2 '18 at 6:07
  • @andyYan I am pretty sure they are running on the same thread or process. Because the browser grinds to a hault when there 10+ tabs for example in Chrome or Samsung browser. – William Mar 2 '18 at 6:09
  • @AndyYan sorry I am not a developer so I might be using the wrong terms but jelly works well because each window is a separate process in Jelly I believe that is why it works better. I am having the issue with Chrome and Samsung Browser when I have a bunch of tabs open. They freeze jelly doesn't. I like the jelly behavior I just want to be able to see all windows I have open. – William Mar 2 '18 at 6:14
  • I guess I understood you backwards then... No suggestions I can give, since AFAIK the recent list doesn't work that way. – Andy Yan Mar 2 '18 at 6:52
