Search YouTube While Watching Videos using YT Background Search

Watching YouTube videos has definitely become a routine for most of us, some of us do it to learn new stuff, others do it hear songs and music and plenty do it purely out of boredom, when there is nothing to do. As a tech enthusiast, unboxing, reviews and rants are all I really look around on YouTube and there are times when I am hooked for what seems an age.

However, one thing that is just as common is the curiosity to watch another video while one is going on. Mentally we make a note that the next video we want to watch is this or that and often forget it. Hence searching for another video without missing the one playing is a big problem, how to get around this? Well, we have the perfect solution for our Google Chrome users.
