What are popup windows?
Popup windows are smaller browser windows that are intentionally missing some features like toolbars, status bars. This makes them very useful for saving space on your screen.
Here's the popup window version of google.de in the very same browser. The tab row and icons around the adress bar are gone. Some browsers will even go as far as hiding the adress bar as well. Of course the bookmarks are also hidden (this is the case in any browser).
There is also dedicated pages for YouTube and Twitch popouts. The YouTube-version automatically converts video page and or playlist links to embed links, so only the actual video is visible in the popout.
Only the actual video is in the popout.
The Twitch-version instead takes only the channel name and opens a similar popout that optionally also includes the chat:
The chat can be seen on the right side next to the stream. Names were censored for this screenshot.
Version 1.2 will be the Preset Update and is currently in development in the v1.2-dev branch.
