I would switch to Edge full time if they implemented universal Picture in Picture support like Firefox and Brave have. It would make it a better browser than Chrome instantly since they only have it working well for YouTube. Is anybody else wanting this feature?

They already have something:
New Feature: Built in Picture in Picture mode (PIP) is added to Microsoft Edge Global Media Controls
But I'm not sure what is available now in the latest stable 89...

Yep that did exactly what I wanted for giantbomb.com. Thank you @Gandalf_The_Grey . Hopefully they make it part of the default eventually.
Does that seems to work also with other sites?

This feature was one reason I was very close to start search and test PiP ( picture in picture ) extensions in Edge, but then the scandal of some of those was official reported as malicious before I got the chance and lucky for us all removed.
I much rather use something built-in.

So far it has worked on a couple sites other than youtube, which is what I was looking for. It says it will play any video feed. I know they showed it working for sites like Twitch, and giantbomb's player uses HTML5 and it worked for that. It of course works for youtube as well. So far I am liking it and haven't found a site I use that it doesn't work on. Though I don't frequent many sites that host their own video.
