Feature request: Not close all windows when syncing

Hi Damien,

currently, syncing causes all windows except the main window to close.
Could it be possible that the browser, preview window, etc. stay open and "survive the sync"?

I like to sync my database every hour or so in order to create a backup, but then I have to re-open the browser, etc., again.

Furthermore, on macOS, I like to put the browser and the preview window both in macOS fullscreen mode — or combine them in Split View which was introduced with macOS El Capitan.
When I sync Anki and all windows get closed, I end up with a fullscreen view that is just black and I have to quit Anki entirely to close that black fullscreen window.

    Hi David,

    In the .28 alphas, a normal sync no longer needs to close windows.
