Latest firefox has new Picture-In-Picture feature so you can watch videos while doing other things. You can click on the pip link that will appear when watching a video and the video will move to TopMost window in bottom-right while all your other windows work as normally.
It's especially nice if you're doing training videos and you want to use your code editor while watching a video.
Here's a snapshot of it: https://i.stack.imgur.com/vIiaA.png[^]
(That's the feature running on Ubuntu desktop, but it works on Win10 too.)
I switched away from Google Chrome to FireFox over a year ago and it has been nice.
Yeah...part of the features of most GUI-based operating systems is to manage windows independently...you'd have to think they would be best suited to allow the user to arrange different windows as he pleases. I can't imagine the people behind Firefox, as smart as they think they might be, could be doing a better job of it.
Oh, yes, for the _rich_ dev who has two monitors, that is all well and good.
But, for the rest of us...There is (Picture-in-Picture)PIP.
Seriously, at home I only have one monitor and this PIP really helps.
I'm not rich, and I have three now: I added one for email / DB monitoring when Herself stopped using her computer ...
I really miss 'em when - like now - I'm on the surface. Doing things so much slower with just one!

Yes, I thought it was so great that I immediately went to settings, and turned it off.
A couple of other browsers let you pop videos out to separate windows, so that you can move them out of the way of the text you're trying to read. That's a slightly better solution, but I hardly ever used that, either.

You can "script" the Windows Voice Synthesizer. English has at least 5 "voices", so now you can have a 5-way. Tried multiple Synths, but only one was effective, so you can't "talk over" someone. Still, with changing pitch, etc., you can have interesting meetings (behind closed doors) and not even be there.
Or add it as a script / hook to your co-workers PC so it talks back as they type.

"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
What do the digits of pi, colliding blocks and quantum search algorithms have in common ... they connect the worlds of dynamics, geometry and quantum computation, highlighting how even the most abstract math puzzles can have surprising physical relevance.
