Is there a way to have a floating window that would show the now playing album art and name of track with play/pause and skip fwd/bwd?
Do you mean like a mini player? We don't have this, but it's a nice idea. Would be good to integrate it into the OS somehow (e.g. in the notification bar).
Yes this exactly. Notification bar would be cool, but I tend to like the minimized players that I can move around depending on what programs I'm using.
