I have Edge, Chrome and Firefox.

 

Do any of them do side by side tabs, and how?

 

I only want two tabs in side by side mode.

@jase2985 Yes, I've been doing side by side windows. Just wondered if there was a more advanced way of doing it.

What are you trying to gain?

If it's something like lower resource use, I think tabs and windows are equal.

I'm just trying to watch 2 livestreams at the same time without all the clicking backwards and forwards.

 

I dont know if the resource requirements of two tabs vs two windows is important or not.

@Jase2985 That is the best trick ever!! Thank you.

 

I often have two file explorer windows open side by side and usually dick around trying to size and place them. NO MORE!

I was looking for something that would do this so I could have 4 websites "full screened" in a quad split configuration on my monitor and came up blank. Was wanting to be able to full screen some streaming sites so that all their controls and crap disappeared but have 4 of them on a single monitor.

 

I was suggested something called divvy- http://mizage.com/windivvy/ was close to what I wanted but was not able to keep a full screened browser contained into a part of the screen which I needed. I have seen some software that let things maximize to part of the screen but it wasnt able to keep full screen undercontrol either.

You used to be able to do this on Split Browser in Firefox. I've just fired up firefox for the first time in a long time and the extension has (a) been renamed and (b) doesn't seem to work and has screwy menu options.

ive got a 34in 21:9 monitor and would love to be able to full screen something but contain it to half or 2/3rds of the screen so i can use the other part for something else.

I've seen paid-for "virtual display" software that will do this. But it's a permanent "fix".

Once you've got your windows split nicely, use this bit of software:

 

WizMouse - Freeware

 

It makes interacting with inactive windows that much nicer.

 

What does it do?

 

WizMouse makes your mouse wheel scroll the window under the mouse even if it's not active. You no longer have to click a window to scroll it.

 

Windows 10 has a built in feature, that lets you do something similar, but apparently its not 100% effective yet.
