Vimeo launches Couch Mode, full screen browsing for the TV

If you're the type who likes to regale your guests with silly viral video clips on the big screen in the living room -- and who doesn't? -- this next item is for you. Vimeo has just launched its "couch mode" full-screen viewing mode. Like YouTube's Leanback mode, it features a simplified UI with just the options you'd want while couch-surfing: in this case a More Info screen toggle and a Watch Later queue. Less clutter means more time to watch eight year old rappers and bad local comedians. Sounds like a winner to us! Currently only available to Chrome and Safari users, with support for other browsers on its way. Get a closer look at the info screen after the break.
