            The Picture-in-Picture API allows for the creation of floating video windows that will always be positioned on top of other windows.
            This kinda sounds like the already annoying videos that auto-play on every other news site.

              The new graphics are the same as the old one, they have rounded the edges and in my opinion they did a good job. I think they just wanted to modernize the graphics without too many changes and so it was. It is normal that there will be users who prefer the old and others happy for the change.

                  Really enjoying this new version. It has a bounce to it and the UI changes feel nice. Love the search box changes and how the tabs blend in with the title bar:

                    The redesign looks terrible. Very ugly. 🤢

                    AV1 video decode support is nice though. 👍
