EDIT: or I can plug another Mac in?
I'm confused by that bit about not alt-tabbing between video of a tutorial and your editor. I can do that now, using, you know, the window manager that's built into the OS. That's why I'm a bit lost, sorry.
So if you're working in your editor full screen, you can keep this floating window on top. And keep most of your screen's real estate.
I hope this answer your questions.
HN has blocked me from commenting too much, but I wanted to share some promo codes !

I'm Yoann Moinet, I've developed Fenêtre.
Thank you so much for all your valuable feedbacks, I love it.
I've worked on it with my friend Max William Neilson, who took care of the designs.
We also are on Product Hunt https://www.producthunt.com/posts/fenetre
To repeat what I answered to other questions.
- Windows is coming.
- I'll have a look for *nix.
- Will fix mobile as soon as I have some time.
- I choose the domain name, and I love it. But it gave us a hard time in multiple places, because special chars are not handle well everywhere!
- Similar to Helium indeed (I love it too) but with a different feature set.
Here are some promo codes for you.
Congrats on the launch and good luck!
A sneak peak of features offered by Fenêtre.
- Browser extension
- Code highlight
- Markdown Viewer
- Click-through and See-through as well as opacity control (Helium has opacity too)
- Lots of settings to control defaults behaviors.
- Mute window
- Clipboard access
- Customizable hotkeys
- Polished experience for some website (Youtube, Vimeo, Twitch, Github to name a few...)
- Access to recent opened items
- Local files support (video, image, text files...)
- Collapsed view
Hope you'll give it a shot !
If you do have an instructional page, please put it somewhere highly visible on your website! I couldn't find it after a bit of scrolling. It might be there, but it should be obvious!
This page really didn't work at all on mobile.
It would be handy to have for programs that are overly buttony and ribbony that you know well enough to navigate keyboard only (or that you use only for a specific subset of commands) which take up far too much screen real estate.
Also, that Unicode domain name looks sweet.
OnTopReplica comes close, copying apps (or sub-regions) into an always-on-top window.
You have to leave the source app up on the desktop (behind whatever else) and the experimental mouse pass-through is sketchy; I use it mostly for read-only stuff (video).
I'm actually working on the windows version. It's not that far, but it needs way more infrastructure, especially for the licence system. As the Mac AppStore has all this built in.
I'll have a look for the *nix version, promise!
Issue: Not allowing to resize window on YT link.
Edit: Actually it works now. Apologies.
I have plans to rework this, and let the user switch between the two modes.
Right now, it's possible to deactivate it in the settings of the Pro app.
I'll change the 'Contact' link at the bottom of the webpage to reflect that.
