Sometimes while I am on my laptop I would like to browse,post on the internet while watching a youtube video. However, I am on a Laptop and I am unsure how I can do two things at once. What is the best way to do this?

I do this in Firefox browser by opening 2 Tabs. One for YT, other for regular browsing, etc. Then just switch back and forth between the 2.

Or if you want both on screen at same time, open 2nd "New Window, re-size the 2 Windows, creating a split screen effect.

Chrome has tabs, too. So does Safari. With pretty much any browser you can make 2 separate windows. Resize, side by side, and do what you want.

Similar to this, just open two instances of your web browser instead of the two programs he used.

I have an extra screen hooked up to my laptop. I put the video on one screen, and browse on the other one.
