Its true -- we can't imagine life without YouTube. And, these tools will help us live our YouTube centred lives better and happier.

Picture in Picture: This is for the times when you visit YouTube on a desktop computer and wish there was a way to minimise the video the way you can on the mobile app. This extension solves that problem. You don't even have to configure anything. Once you install the extension, it does its magic. While watching a video, you can search for another video, and have the current video continue playing in a picture-in-picture window sitting at the bottom right corner.

YouTube Map Explorer: If you are a video junkie, you will be familiar with the itch to explore new content from all over the world. YouTube Map Explorer lets you scroll through the world map and see what kind of videos people are sharing in a specific region. You never know, you just might find the perfect channel for yourself.

Watch2gether: Made that amazing list of comedy videos or the post-rock playlist you want to listen to with your friend? This is a great website where you can create a room of your own and add videos to it. The website even provides an option for you to add videos from Vimeo and Dailymotion, and audio from Soundcloud.

FlyTube: FlyTube lets you watch YouTube videos even after you have closed the app, by letting the video float on your mobile screen. When you're sending a quick message to someone or checking an email, this is a great app to have handy. Once you have installed the app, you can click on any Youtube link on the web or on the app, and hit the share button. In the menu, you will have to select Flytube and you'll have your floating window.
