Split Browser, the add-on for Firefox, splits up the content area of the browser in as many windows as you like. Each window you see, also has its own mini browser inside.
This is a really helpful extension for those people out there that work on multiple pages at the same time and down want to have two Firefox windows open side by side or don’t want to switch between tabs. There are several ways you can decide to split your window too.
Ways to become more productive by splitting up your browser…
- Choose the "Split Browser to" menu in the context menu.
- Choose the "Load in Split Browser" menu in the context menu on link.
- Click popup-button on top/bottom/left/right edges of the content area.
- Drop links, bookmarks, etc. to popup-button on top/bottom/left/right edges of the content area while dragging.
There is no limit to the number of windows you can open inside of your browser. Of course, adding too many might get a little on the silly side. Click the picture to your right to see an example of the madness that can happen with a few too many windows open.
Another great use for this, would be to view one page normally, and then load up a mobile or sidebar-friendly page and squeeze it down so everything fits in nicely. You can pick up the Split Browser add-on for Firefox on the Firefox Add-ons web site or learn more about it on the official Split Browser web site.
