My Problem With TV Streaming Websites

I don’t have TV – either cable or satellite. So when I want such entertainment, I just turn to on-line streaming (Netflix, Crackle, etc.) yet I have a problem with all of the ones I’ve found – they are so “website”-centric, that if you are actually a bit of a power user, it becomes an encumbrance to have a browser tab/window open to keep it streaming. To me, it’s a lot easier to run a desktop app which can be dynamically sized, nice reduced interface – think VLC here.

Anyway, that’s my pet peeve with it.
