    However, it's finished, and going back to rescale all the elements would be
    major work. Is there any kind of workaround I could implement so that users
    can conveniently switch back and forth between the movie and the browser?

    I use the Buddy API xtra to open the browser. Then the user can always
    switch between programs by using the pop-up menu bar at the bottom of their
    screen, just like they normally would do to switch between programs.
