Double Vision

This unique browser lets you watch your favorite videos while you work. With such a superb performance and intuitive user interface, it's hard to believe that it's free.

When you first install Double Vision, it requires that you read a very brief tutorial. There, you'll learn how to navigate the browser, and use the available shortcuts to hide and adjust the video display's transparency. Basically, all you have to do is use the program's search engine to find your favorite video site. Once you've found a video, click the Go button on the user interface, and the video instantly becomes transparent and positions itself behind whatever you're working on at the moment. Aside from using the hot keys, a slide bar on the video display window lets you adjust the transparency. You can also adjust the screen size. Regardless of whether you are working on a text document or browsing the Web, the video plays in the background while you go about your business. Of note, if you use the hot-key combo to hide the video, the sound does not go away, only the video.

Along with the tutorial, the program also offers help in the form of FAQs. Double Vision is extremely easy to use and is a great tool for letting you watch videos without skipping a beat.

Developer's Description

With Double Vision, you can watch online videos without impacting available space on your computer monitor and without interfering with programs already running. Double Vision is a regular web browser intended for watching online (and local) videos. After beginning to watch a video you can enter "Double Vision Mode". At that point, the browser becomes semi-transparent (you select the transparency) and the browser is "click-through" which means that you can still interact with programs running underneath.
