Floating Mac browser Fluid makes its debut

February 25, 2016


Billed as “the multitasking browser for everyone,” Fluid is the Mac’s new browser that takes great strides to improve productivity and multitasking on your desktop. Mac users can now enjoy a browser that features picture-in-picture capability, which lets them position the window wherever they choose. Even with the biggest, 27-inch Macs, screen space can still feel limited, making this browser serve a real need.

Apple users will note that using iOS 9 to multitask has never been easier today, thanks to the new picture-in-picture feature on the iPad. This has allowed people to watch Netflix in the foreground while they browse in the background, for instance.

At last, OSX users now have the same opportunity on their desktops. Called a multi-tasker’s dream, Fluid “floats” on top of all of the other windows that you have open during your work flow. Here’s an unexpected-though-remarkable bonus: It also has a transparency feature that, when activated, lets you actually see the content behind Fluid.

Let’s say you want to go to another site when using Fluid. You simply go back to the app via the icon in the dock at the bottom of the screen or the menu bar icon at the top.
