Summary

Changes fullscreen buttons so they will put a window around the fullscreen app. This allows you to put a Youtube video about a subject next to the paper you are writing or watch a show on Netflix while chatting. This extension will not reload the video you are watching, nor use some custom controls: it puts the website in its own fullscreen mode. Now also supports Picture-in-Picture mode when fullscreening a video, but this takes away the websites video controls.


This extension requires "Read sites data" permission to function, but you can right-click the extension icon, click "This Can Read and Change Site Data" and enable it only for websites that you are comfortable with. Also the source is open, so you can read that no data is actually read or changed by this extension :)

It will present you with a small menu when you click fullscreen, so you can choose to go fullscreen or windowed.

This extension is really awesome, especially for ultra-wide monitors. However there is no way to unscreen the video and return to the page which hosted the video you're watching. I end up having to close the whole window every time.

잘 작동하는 익스텐션입니다. 다만 단축키가 하드코딩 되어있어 별도로 지정할 수 없습니다. 이와 관련한 옵션을 제공하지 않는 것은 아쉽습니다.
