Opera software has broken the tradition by introducing a new feature — video pop out— directly in the beta by without offering it in the developer build for testing. This is quite a surprise, and the feature based on HTML5 technology in Opera 37, lets you move a video to side of your screen and stick it anywhere you want.

Opera’s Aneta Reluga on detachable video feature says”this feature allows you to shift your video frame to the side of your screen, so that you can truly multitask: browse the comments, look for something in another tab or even prepare a presentation without missing out on the video action. Drag and toss your video around the screen, place it wherever you like, and close it immediately should the need arise.”

Just visit YouTube or any other video sharing site, and try to play any video, locate a button in the top middle of video, click on it to detach the video, place it anywhere you want and close it if you want or re-attach it again. This video, which appears at the edge of the screen after detaching has its own controls to use like its original video.
