Lock a (Safari) window to the front of your screen...

Hello,

I was wondering if there is anyway to keep a safari window or a chat window permanently at the front of your screen.

ie when you click on another application it doesn't disappear behind it.

I have had a look at something from 2008 called Afloat. But wasn't sure.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks

This would make using any other app somewhat difficult. Is that what you are trying to achieve?

Since Afloat is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, it must be from 2011 at least. Tried it yet?

Yep. Afloat is working well.

Does make using apps difficult, but when watching training videos can be pretty handy.
