Say you have Epiphany open on workspace 1, and another one open on

Terminal and Evince purposefully do not have Quit in the app menu for
this reason.

I expect to be able to quit a web browser like Firefox, having all the
windows close (and possibly re-open when launched again).

But, with evince I just expected that each window was a separate program
instance. So, in that case, quit would terminate the focused program
instance. I had no idea that when opening unrelated documents in evince
that all the windows were being managed by one central program.
        There is no indication that the windows are all connected under the
same program. Though now thinking about it, I'm struggling to pin down
exactly what suggests to my mind that Firefox or Libreoffice windows
belong to a single instance.
