Vivaldi Browser 2.1 now features Picture-in-Picture (PiP)

The team behind the innovative Vivaldi browser released a new snapshot of the upcoming version of the app. Vivaldi 2.1.1332.4 brings a few new features, a new Picture-in-Picture mode, along with the ability to create notes from Quick Commands.


Picture-in-Picture mode allows opening videos that play in the web browser in a small overlay window which can be managed separately from the browser's window.

In Vivaldi, you can right-click on a video and select Picture-in-picture from the context menu. For certain sites like Youtube, this is not yet possible via the their custom context menu (though double right clicking works around that).
