Youtube now allows watching videos in small window while browsing the site

YouTube has released a mini video player for the desktop version of its website. With the mini-player, users can watch videos in a small window while they visit other pages on the video streaming service.

I thought that was a stupid idea when I got my first Android device. However, now that the website itself does the same thing, I have to say it’s quite… it’s… screw it, it’s still pretty stupid.

At least I’m not really affected, since I mostly download videos from the command-line program youtube-dl, anyway.
