Split 2 Tabs Vertically or Horizontally

Would it be cool to be able to view 2 different Websites at the sametime.
User can split 2 tabs vertically or horizontally. Of course vertical view is
perferred these days with widescreen monitors become very common in the
market place. For more information how it should work, check it out the
Visual Studio, the IDE development tool allows programmer to split the tabs,
like looking at the UI and Code-Behind at the same. In this case for a
regular Internet user, while reading the news on msnbc.com, he/she can keep
track with his/her final-minute bidding item on eBay.com. Ain't that cool if
IE8 can do that?

At least for viewing some eBay item, a webslice is the solution, I think.
Yet, the idea itself is good.

Sorry, but IE (or better windows) have a similiar feature already...

1) Open an IE and go to www.google.com
2) Open a second IE and go to www.live com
3) Hold down the CTRL key and select both both taskbar entries, now
make a rightclick on one of them

Maxthon 2.0.8 already has a split screen. All you need to do is hit the F10
key. Works beautifully.

Re: Split 2 Tabs Vertically or Horizontally

Hi Peter,

You could make a context menu or Command bar button/menu item to load a side
or bottom pane.

I must admit the Maxthon browser's implementation is slick.

The Explorer bar implementation does allow two different web sites to be
displayed within a single tab/window context. However there are cross-zone
security issues.

There is also a Mozilla bookmarklet that can provide a screen split.

Although for what purpose one would use this feature I cannot think of. The
Live Translation services splits the screen into two frames, showing the
original and translated pages side to side. Compare the live implementation
with that of the Google Translation services which has a top banner frame
with the fully functional site in a frame underneath.

Regards.
