Windows 7: "always on top" explorer window

"always on top" explorer window

Hey guys if I have multiple instances of Internet Explorer open (not tabbing but separate windows) Is there a way to make one specific window "always on top" like windows media player??

This comes in handy if I want to watch a netflix movie in one small window while still being able to browse another larger window in the background.

I know you can put the windows side by side, but then you have to use the side scroll to read stuff as both windows cannot fit the entire text in the smaller windows.

I like having one window maximized, while having a movie or something in a much smaller box in the corner or something running which is always displayed even if its not the active window. Am I weird or what
