I have seen this called "Focus Follows Mouse" vs "Click To Focus".  Most
(but not all) window managers will let you change this.  To find it
quickly, I suggest you search on "focus" in the rc file, and if that
doesn't work, do the same search in the man page.

Do you turn it on or off?  Totally up to you. People often have trouble
getting used to "focus follows mouse", but I don't know very many people
who have used both and still prefer "click to focus".
