revbrowserset instanceID, "visible", false -- or true
to hide and show the instance that you want.
Since revbrowser is an external overlay, it kinda takes over and lays on
top of your stack in the rect you designate, so showing 2 at once on top of
each other is problematic. So just hide the ones you don't want to show.
