Picture-in-picture video is already popular for tablets and bigger smartphones (some of which might as well be tablets anyway), but it’s not really made its way onto PCs or desktops just yet. Google is hoping to change that with an upcoming addition to the Chrome browser, which would make it possible to play videos in a small window while doing other things. Given that Google owns YouTube, there’s a lot of sense in helping people have videos (and, therefore, ads) run in the background.
Although the feature isn’t widely available yet, less than five minutes of work can have it up and running on your PC right now, thanks to GHacks. Yes, I timed it.
