Friendly Streaming works just like any other normal browser, except that it’s floating on top of all other windows, and can be adjusted to be transparent.
You’ll keep finding new uses for it. Monitoring stock quotes, keeping up with your Twitter feed or work slack channels. The possibilities are endless.

A Home Run!
Wow, they really hit this one out of the Park! I’m sooooo happy these folks put the energy & time into making such an app as this one! It’ll blow your mind that you can add ANY other streaming website not included with the basic 6 streaming sites they’ve already included. You want to watch Apple TV+? Just add it in the the other button & voila, there it is!. You want to add IDBm steaming site? So simple. Just put in the name of your favorite streaming sites, the URL and bingo, it’s right there! You can add any of your favorute streaming sites. No more opening a browser site, they're already there. A one stop shop. Truly amazing! No more adding user names & passwords, do it once & they’re already done. This is such a simple feat of genius you have to download and try it. Hat’s off to these folks for creating the evolution of the future of entertainment watching, steaming all in one app! They give it to you free, but ask you just once if you’d like to make a small donation to them for using it, now that I have test ran it, I’m going to give them some money for their brilliance. A true joy & an excellent HD experience, one click & you’re full screen on my 17 inch MacBook Pro. Put a pair of headphones on, put it on my chest & I’m automatically transformed to the theater without any buffering or bothering anyone else. This one is a MUST HAVE! Thanx you guys for programming the next generation of entertainment watching!! This App ROCKS!!!
Honestly, this is the only 3rd party streaming app that I've ever used, so it's possible there are others which are superior, but in general, this does what it ought to, and seems to do it pretty well. Netflix plays smoother, and looks better than it does when I stream using a browser application. The only real suggestion I woul have is the option to have a detached transport control (etc.). Would be great to be able to see the artist/track, like/dislike the track, etc. without having to toggle apps, or have the player taking up valuable screen real estate when I'm on a single display. Would be fantastic if it could be in the menu bar, but given that not even iTunes does that, that's probably a bit much to ask.
In general I'm stoked on this app so far, will probably remain my main OSX media streamer for the foreseeable future.
Good all-around user experience
I have been using (and loving) Friendly Streaming for about 6 months and ran into my first issue. I messaged them about it on FB and they were able to implement a fix within the week. Not only that, but the update also included a new way to ask for help directly within the app. I hadn't complained, but had thought to myself that it wasn't very user-friendly to have to go outside the app to report an issue. And voila, now that is no longer the case! I don't anticipate having many other issues, based on my over-all experience with the app; but I now feel confident that if I do, I will be able to report them easily and see them solved even quicker.
