The vast majority of existing web browsers are based on Chromium. Few are those that do not depend on the code developed by Google and only some such as Mozilla's Firefox or Apple's Safari are capable of working without it. Microsoft's Edge has also given up and included it in the latest version of its Edge. Another browser that is based on Chromium is the protagonist of this article that has been released today Vivaldi 2.11.
The first novelty that we mention in the note of its launch is that in Vivaldi 2.11 They have improved their Pop-out. But what is this? In fact, Vivaldi Technologies has wanted to give its own name to a well-known function which in English they refer to as Picture-in-Picture (picture in picture) or PiP. Personally, I don't quite understand why renaming something so popular if it might confuse users, but that's what it's called at Vivaldi. Having explained this, the improvement has been to add a button to take off the window, one similar to the one in Firefox but we still cannot use it in other browsers such as Chrome.
