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
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!
