Multitask with ease.
Helium is a floating browser window that allows you to watch media while you work. Your content will never fall behind your other windows even as you switch tasks.
Look your work in the eye.
Helium supports a customizable translucency mode that allows you to simultaneously see your content and your work. Even cooler, Helium does not intercept mouse clicks when it is translucent! That's right, you can still click, drag, scroll, even flick behind your floating content. When you want to interact with the browser again, just click the icon in the dock and you're back in control.
More than fun.
Helium is useful for all kinds of multitasking, not just television and movies. Imagine keeping your Google Hangouts or Slacker window above the rest while you collaborate, or watching tutorials and reading documentation while programming—the possibilities are endless!

"Does Helium support Netflix?"
Yes, it does!
"I'm getting a 'Blocked Plug-in' error on YouTube. What do I do?"
Make sure you update to the newest version of flash (according to Safari, not Chrome!), and it should go away.
"What are magic URL redirects and why do I want them on?"
Magic redirect is a feature that automatically redirects you to *just* the video file when you paste a link to a YouTube or Vimeo video's page. It's pretty sweet.
"It's broken and I'm sad."
Try using the unsandboxed version instead and see if that fixes your problems.
"I'm still having some issues. What should I do?"
Either reach out on Twitter or submit an issue on GitHub.
"Can I give you free money?!?"
