If you, like us, are a Mac user with a short attention span, check out Helium, a new browser for OS X. When you open media in Helium, it stays visible in front of all your other windows, making multitasking (or multiprocrastinating, as the case may be) a breeze.


Here's a glimpse of Helium in action, as demonstrated with an episode of Parks & Recreation that this reporter is streaming strictly for professional business purposes.


Better yet, try out Helium's translucent mode (you can adjust the exact opacity to your liking) for a better view of your work. You can even click behind the video as it plays.

For what it's worth, you can use Helium for other purposes besides watching videos — keeping an eye on Slack, for instance — but let's be real. This is about you and Netflix.
