Great at what it does, want it to do more.

First of all, if you're looking for this app, you'll probably end up loving it. Adjusting translucency is easy, and there are shortcuts for everything

Things that could make me love the app more:
1) When using cmd L to enter a URL, it would be nice if the typing cursor was automatically placed in the url bar.
2) I cannot seem to get this app to open a jpg, and i imagine there are some other common files it cannot open. If helium could do this, it would nearly be a full browser. Would be awesome for holding up a screenshot of notes translucent over another program

Saved my LIFE

Helium ACTUALLY saved my life. Here I am, a college freshman, interning at a small business over the break. Of course, being an intern, my job is to do all the boring things that no one else wants to do. I’m talking endless spreadsheets, mind-numbing data entry, that sort of stuff. So what am I to do for eight hours a day, stuck doing the most boring things known to man? Enter Helium. I was able to get all my work done without going insane from boredom by watching Netflix through Helium. It never got in the way of my work, could be resized, moved anywhere, even sometimes could change the opacity. Finally, I could be productive while entertaining myself and neither got in the way of the other. Helium, you saved my life from being overcome by even the most mind-numbingly boring work possible. Thank you!!!

GREAT APP!!! But… I kinda would like to see a couple other features.

This app saves me. I love being able to keep up with a news livestream, or sports livestream while dealing with emails or working on homework. It’s really a nifty app. THough I’d love to have app specific volume control (rather than just muting my whole computer) and I’d love to be able to have more than one video playing.
