Gee! I wonder why I didn't know that? It seems apparent that no one can answer my question, so I shall consider this thread closed.

How am I going off in a tangent?
I asked what issues were you having in the browser?

Let me try and download the app as I like Hulu but only view in IE.
I'll see how it works.

With an attitude like that you're lucky to get any answer at all... my reply was not intended to be sarcastic... if you are watching hulu, what need is there for another active application to be displayed on the desktop... in the future instead of attitude, try google...

It seems pointless to respond to your question, but I shall anyway. My OP did not ask about how to resolve the issues that I had with viewing Hulu via a browser. I only mentioned it in passing as a background for my decision to use the app instead, as I tend to be as complete as possible in the details of a situation as possible. I answered your questions regarding this in the same vein.

I had no intention or desire to change the focus of the thread to anything other than my one and simple question...a switch or method to keep an application always on top, when it didn't have that capability designed into it's interface. The likely answer was that either it wasn't possible, or that no one new how to do it. Either of these answers would have sufficed, but of course, I hoped that there was a third alternative...a solution. The answer that you provided was none of these. As far as I'm concerned, browser viewing is not an alternative.

I don't consider it a rebuke, just an explanation.

You were right. I found a number of Google returns, like this one:

Any HULU Plus Subscribers out there?
I'm just wondering if $7.99 is worth the upgrade to HULU Plus. It seems to me that if they're going to charge a fee they can get rid of the commercials. Does anyone recommend any other services or is HULU Plus a good upgrade?

Watched Hulu on chrome...now Hulu won't stop playing in background
Ok here is my issue. Last night I wanted to catch up on parks and rec, so I watched a few shows. This morning, I turn on my computer and parks and rec is playing! All programs closed, no video except audio. I don't know what to do! I restarted the computer twice and that didnt work. Any...

Hulu
As I suspected, since Hulu started their Hulu Plus subscription service, the available programming on regular Hulu, of interest to me, has dwindled considerably. Even their 1 week trial requires giving them a credit card #, which gives them the right to make continous debits each month on the...

Hulu Ad Blocker
In a recent change of the Hulu web player, it was supposed to contain a change to regulate ad volume, but in reality all that it does is boost the volume from what had been an annoyance, to an ear blasting wall shaking sonic wave. In the past, my firewall blocked some ads, but for some reason,...

Hulu Desktop
I like Hulu Desktop. It presents some odd behavior though. When run full screen on a second monitor, CPU usage is 50%+ Full screen on the primary monitor, CPU aproaches 50%. In fact, no matter which monitor it is playing in, changing the window size up and down has a direct corelation in CPU...

Hulu keeps stopping...
Hulu is really the easiest place to watch this new anime i've just discovered, Bleach, and every now and then it just stops, *waits about 10 seconds or so* then continues. I also notice that the buffer meter is all the way down. this is EXTREMELY frustrating! Is it like this for you guys? this is...
