Last night we reported that a new build of the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge has leaked online and is available for download. This allowed everyone to try the new build of Microsoft Edge and use it on their devices.

Microsoft has re-built Edge browser using Chromium which allowed Microsoft to incorporate some of the features that are already available in Google Chrome. One of those included Picture-in-Picture mode as well. Most of the modern browsers including Google Chrome support Picture-in-Picture mode and it’s only fair that Microsoft brought the support for PiP as well. To try PiP, you will need the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge and you will need to go to YouTube. Once there, open a video, right-click on it and select Picture-in-Picture mode.

Of course, it goes without saying that downloading and installing apps from unknown sources can be risky. That said, if you’re fixated on trying the leaked Microsoft Edge build then you can install it on a Virtual Machine to be safe.
