Add a button to YouTube™ to pop the video out into a new resizable window.
Add a button to YouTube™ videos above the top-right corner to pop the video out into its own popup window. The resulting window contains the full YouTube™ player with all controls for quality, closed captioning, full screen etc. that can be resized to scale the video. Each video gets its own window, so you can open as many videos as you like.
"Always On Top?"
A LOT of people have asked that the extension include an "always on top" option. I would do this in a heart beat if I could, but it's IMPOSSIBLE. The Chrome API doesn't let you do that. Your window manager has to provide this for you, and there is software out there to do this for you for free. Just google "Windows always on top" or "Mac always on top". If you're using Linux, you can probably right-click the title bar and select "Always On Top."
