Does anyone know of a browser I can open NetFlix in and keep it 'Always on Top'? I like to watch movies in a small window on top of whatever else I'm doing (web browsing, email, Word, etc.) and can with most of the movie players like KM Player, and would like to stream NetFlix like that too.

Well I'm a bit closer to watching NetFlix while surfing. Boxee's PC software allows me to watch NetFlix in a re-sizable window. Now if I can just find a way to keep it on top.

I thought Google TV could do that, but I could be wrong.

Go get "Always On Top" (which coincidentally is the title of this thread): http://www.labnol.org/software/tutor...s-on-top/5213/

There is a download link and instructions. Pretty simple, and I just tested it on my Win7 machine. Basically just install it (takes 2 seconds), then press CTRL+Space and the active window will stay on top. Press CTRL+Space again and it'll revert back to acting normally. Works pretty good.

EDIT: I did discover you can do this on multiple windows. I had a browser window "pinned" and skype also "pinned" and both would stay on top of all other windows (but I could put skype on top of the browser and vice versa). There is no way to identify a pinned window, unfortunately, but if you try to move a window on top of it, it becomes obvious.

I know this is a very old post - but you should try FlixOnTop - it does everything you described. I use it to watch NetFlix every day - on the side and "always on top"!

Thanks. I also found one called '4t Tray Minimizer Free' that not only does always on top but can do transparency.
