We all do our share of multitasking on our computers, and sometimes this means watching a video while doing other work. This is easy if you have a larger monitor or a dual or triple monitor setup, where you can watch the video on one side and everything else on the other side. But what if you use a single monitor?
This can be tricky due to a lack of room. Mozilla’s Firefox browser’s latest update introduces picture-in-picture mode for videos, which might help.
Mozilla says, “We all have busy lives and want to get the most out of every minute. In today’s Firefox release we’re rolling out Picture-in-Picture available in all video sites. Picture-in-Picture allows a video to be contained in a separate and small window, and still be viewable whether you switch from tab-to-tab or outside the Firefox browser.”
Picture-in-picture isn’t new. Websites like YouTube already use the feature, but with the latest Firefox update, the video will continue to persist even after you switch tabs or apps. Right now, the feature is only available for Firefox on Windows, but Mozilla will be bringing it to macOS and Linux in January 2020. This is a very useful feature.
