Don't show unread-label on open (active) channel/chat #203

Suggestion: Don't show the label for unread messages on incoming messages to an already open chat.

I understand there is some logic for browser active/deactive state, but when always having the chat open on a monitor the label can become a bit annoying.

This is a completely different feature, but:

Having an unread-notification-line indicating last read message could give the same visual aid, but in a more subtle way). Something like this:
I'm not sure if this is already a feature, but at least I can't see it in my version. If it is not perhaps merging this issue and creating a new issue for such a feature is an idea?

:+1: the line. Would make it much easier to find where the unread messages begin.
