Make the trainer a detachable window

A lot of the time the trainer does get in the way of the window I'm testing. While you can use it in the DevTools window, I'm often using this and instead would prefer the trainer to become a detachable window.

    I don't think it will be able to be a detachable window. Mabl is using a chrome extension it can only operate in a chrome browser.

    For it be a detachable window it would have to be separate program installed on your machine. This could increase functionality though allowing more test recording options but translating into a cloud based platform would be difficult at best.  The main feature of Mabl is the cloud based testing.  

    There are limits to each testing platform.

    One option would be to undock DevTools so it is a separate window.

    If it were to be a pop-up window, it may disappear behind the window you are testing. Would experience be one that would work for you? Are there any features you would want to see with the separate window?

    Having to open Dev Tools up each time becomes a huge pain, the option to default open Dev tools instead of the trainer window would also work.

    But overall I work with multiple monitors and being able to place the trainer on a different window is the ideal option.
