This is a cool extension that lets you open 2 websites side by side under one tab in chrome browser. Once installed click the button and it prompts the user for two URL addresses and then displays both in one tab.
Great for cross-referencing, studying and surfing the web in general! Watch a youtube video, (or wait for it to buffer) while you surf another webpage. Its also has a default notepad which saves whatever you write for the next time you use the extension.
Using Windows 7 to Dock, Align Two Windows Side by Side
In Window 7 if you press + [right] or [left] it aligns the window half width across the desktop towards the right or left. So if you open 2 instances of your browser, simply align them both half way through the screen, one on the left, the other on the right to view them together.
Note: To open a tab as a new window, drag the tab down towards the taskbar or right click a link and select Open link in new window. Also, watch this video to understand the windows 7 right to left docking feature.
