Float Embedded Videos

Add abillity to 'float' embedded videos in web browsers so that you can keep watching the video even when you switch tabs.

Ever been 'passively' watching a video on a web page, and found your browsing held hostage by it?

It would be a sweet browser feature to have a button that will float an embedded video, so that it becomes a 'subwindow' that is Always On Top even if you switch to another tab.

This way you could continue browsing on other tabs without losing site of the video and having to constantly switch back and forth.

Thanks for baking!

       I like. It sometimes happens accidentally. You can get pop-out players. What about intrusive ads though?

       Somewhat interesting, but I'm afraid it would lead to security problems of tabs wanting to play outside of their sandbox somehow. Chrome is built to keep these things separated as a measure of system stability. Neutral.
