Not everyone had dual monitors and not everyone has enough space to have two different browser windows open at once and still have space left on the screen. A new Chrome extension has been created to help solve this issue called Split Screen, which allows you to have two different web pages open side-by-side within one Chrome browser window. Sometimes you need to compare two different sites against one another, other times you might be writing a paper and would like to have both of your sources up at once, well now you can with this handy extension.
Like most Chrome extensions Split Screen installs as a button on your Chrome menu bar and to activate the extension all you must do is click on that button. Once you have clicked it you will notice your browser separate into two and a URL bar will be visible on both sides. The only draw back to this extension is that it disables your URL bar to be used as a search bar, so if you where to just type in a word and hit enter like within a normal Chrome window nothing would happen in this case. The nice part about this extension is that both windows will scroll independently of each other.
NOTE: Refreshing/reloading the window will wipe both windows blank and return them to their default position and if the Back button on your browser is used, you will be sent back to the previous page you were one before you enabled Split Screen.
