very user-friendly!

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is exactly what I was looking for. I'm using a terminal inside my FF most of the time, with shellinabox on a Linux box. I was looking for something like this to put my terminal in the window. Thanks. It works great.

Edit: If only I could save/restore the panel state, that would be awesome.

Edit #2: Tip: Those who want tabs or zoom in split panel try going to this url in the panel:



Working Well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So far, in Firefox 19 (Linux) this extension is working perfectly well without slowing my 9-year-old computer down. Being fully resizeable and having separate navigation buttons and a basic menu for saving, bookmarking or changing the location is a useful touch.

It would've been preferable if the button defaulted to using an icon instead of text; I wouldn't care, except changing it requires the browser be restarted. More problematically, the options window is too small to include the text & buttons, and doesn't allow resizing. If my desktop environment (KDE 4) didn't let me force windows to change size, I wouldn't have been able to hit the buttons to save my settings.

PS. It seems from what other creators have done that it's possible to rename an extension, so please change it to "Split Panel" so it's spelled correctly! Or perhaps rename it something else entirely like "Window Panes" so it's not potentially confused with the rival that's getting an increasingly bad rep.

Used in combination with the addon 'Download Manager Tweak', Split Pannel, allows me to have the regular website in the top of a vertically aligned 29" monitor, and the download tab in the bottom. Perfect for QA'ing the links on websites.

Works alright. Doesn't have a lot of the same features as Fox Splitter. Wish they would update it.

Great, but too bad that the reload of TabMixPlus does not work in the splitted part, and too bad there is no split to the top.

another useless splitter Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Why is it so hard to get a simple and working panel splitter?!

First - this splitter ignores the zooming factor of the browser, and so often makes text hard to read on big screens for which it is common to use zooming.

Second - the split made on one tab - to get reference to different part of the same document, goes on to all the other tabs that have nothing to do with the original tab and page it was originally split for.

Almost perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon works much better for me than previous addons i have used. With Splitbrowser or Tiletab, the tab that you tile is still listed among your tabs, and you always had to be careful to click into the proper tab before navigating with the on screen or mouse buttons (because it might open page in the wrong tile otherwise. I like to make use of my widescreen aspect ratio by having chatzilla tiled to the right and taking up about 1/3 of the horizontal screen resolution, leaving me a roughly 5:4 rile on the left for webbrowsing. I never have to worry about the navigating im doing in the left pane accidentally closing out chatzilla in the other tile if i forget to click back into the proper tile after typing in iRC.

the one problem i have tho is the way that pages are tiled. you have to open the page in a tab and then right click in the tab content somewhere and hit Tile>Right (or whatever direction). I think it would be much better if you made it so that you can right-click on links or bookmarks and have that same context menu option to open the link in a tile. The reason this is so annoying is that i have chatzilla set to autoperform my irc logins when i open it, and when i open it in a tab in order to tile it (which opens another instance of chatzilla which also tries to login) its not able to log in on the tile because it was already doing it in the first one. hope thats not confusing lol

also it would be nice to have the ability to zoom on the tiled tab. i just increased the fontsize in chatzilla to remedy this problem, but i could imagine other ppl finding it a bigger issue for what theyre trying to do.

but im not going to knock a star off for this one, since its so perfect for my needs one i get things situated.

Multi-splits Rated 5 out of 5 stars

thank you for this split browser replacement. im a fan of split pannels. it would be great to have the advantage of more than 2 splits at the same time though (for wide screen users)
good work though!

This add-on did not work w/4.0, the only button that worked for "Options" was the cancel button. When I did split and put a window to the right, I clicked on the reload button and the window disappeared.

My mistake

My mistake, thought I had checked it on FF4. In the mean time I set compatibility back on 0.8.8. It should be OK with FF3*

Ok, I guess in theory, a split screen function can come in handy at times. The problem with this add-on is that there are no instructions, turning it off is next to impossible, and they placed the switch in absolutely the wrong place. Put it on the toolbar somewhere; don't hide it on the scroll bar. I can't tell you how many times I would start scrolling, and the window would just split; I didn't even realize what I had done the first few times. And undoing it is too big of a hassle.

I uninstalled it.

很好的分屏插件,希望能更新 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

感觉比Split Browser、Tile Tabs、All-in-One Sidebar 的分屏效果要直观些,对google docs支持良好。

希望能支持火狐3.63版,将插件Split Pannel更新至最新版。

I wish one addon developer would get dualview/tab splitting done Right for once.

intuitive drag and dropping of a link/tab to a SIDE edge of the current view should split that the window taking that link/tab and opening its own view, more importantly though, and which so far has not happened at all, is that the TABBAR should also be split, and corresponding tabs should be moved accordingly to the top of each split view frame, so each new split would have its own view frame, but also its own tab bar effectively allowing you to have two browsersing in one window, but without all the duplicated control shit.. the second most important thing is that the locationbar, and toolbar buttons should work in a unified manner, so that the last splittab is the one where commands and actions goto. thus no duplicated controls.

right now every one of these tab splitting addons fails, because either it fails to even offer any locationbar/tab control over that split, or its duplicates its own mini toolbar, which is just dumb.

So far the only application to get tab splitting down right is Maxthon2, where the tabbar is split, ok so it only does Dualview, but for most people that is exactly what is required, more than 3window splits is just stupid and not needed in most cases.

What is also need is a way for users to pull out video/swf type objects into there own mini window, with extra ui controls , like tab detach/reteach, always on top window support.. this would mean most people wouldn't even need to split a window into multiple sections. And why dualsplitting with a seperated tabbar, and unified location/toolbar actions work for both split views depending on which is the currently active or last actvice split view.

Please some one get it right, its not hard(or maybe it is with Firefox) but it has been done right, just for Maxthon2 (beta5), which uses the sucky IE engine, and lacks the rest of the FF extensions.
