a (hopefully temporary) pip solution for mac users

hey, plexers—

so, as i (we) wait for the coveted pip within plex media player,
i started researching chrome extensions for picture-in-picture
goodness (to no avail, it looks like they are all safari extensions).


in my searching i found a free app called helium (mac only).
it's a single window browser (no navigation from what i can tell)
that floats above all other windows, with optional transparency.


+el cap+yosemite users rejoice: you don't need sierra to run it.

it's not perfect, but it's 85% perfect.

(apologies if this should be in another forum. it's mac-specific+
addresses the pip wants of sierra (+as a bonus, slightly
under sierra) users.)

    I fail to see what this has to do with Plex Media Player.
    Are you referring to the Plex app for iOS?
