LinkBubble

Speaking of floating applications, we could not forget us of one of the pioneers, LinkBubble, briefly known as Brave. Is not a full browser with which you can replace Chrome (that is where comes Brave) but a browser add-on for Open links from applications quickly.

The idea is that when someone send you a link to WhatsApp, Facebook or similar, you can open it quickly and discreetly in a floating bubble, without changing application and, therefore, catapulting your abilities to multi-tasking to new heights.
