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.
I hope the author will fix it.
Almost seems like this could be a delivered function in FF.
However, I agree with eliuri. The add-on is cool but the font size/zoom functions don't apply to the split off panel.
Regardless, good work.
This add-on would be so much better if the word "Panel" were spelled correctly.
I will "protest." This add-on needs more than five stars. It is perfect and simple. The only surprise, is the navigation bar. After clicking it to browse a site, it opens a pop-up. Pops up annoys me.
no great surprise that trying to have more than one splitting utility does not work at all well. So I've disabled tab Splitter & Split browser, as having all three of these active produces a bizarre and unusable screen!!!
Seems to work OK, after I disabled Split Browser & tab Splitter.
No great surprise if splitters are incompatible with each other.
Does exactly what it states, no bells or whistles here. Brilliant if you quickly need to compare sites simultaneously without switching tabs and losing the info. No problems so far with tab mix+ or any other extensions I have installed. Great work.
If your going to split the main interface, make it as simple as possible.
Keep the main URL bar where it is along with links, and just have a panel for the seperate web page/pages only.
It gives more space for the web page to display.
Basically just put a small bar down the middle. Done.
I opened 3 pages using the split addon (right click and select down) and try to run a macro that i was hoping to run on the 2 other splitted pages but the other pages just won't execute the macro. Only the main page executes the macro and the rest won't follow.
Can anyone help me on this please? Would appreciate your help so much.
Thanks for the update for FF3.5!!!
Worked great! Add no problems with Mixed Tab plus addon or the Zotero Research addon. Options panel was easy to use and let me setup the tab context menu with easy. Great add on!!
I couldn´t work out how to use this for about 10 minutes. Returned to the Firefox download page and read through a couple more times then, voila!
A great tool - something I have been looking for for ages and very simple to use.
But why not have the choice of a button or a clearer explanation on how to use?
To be fair, I use Mac OS and with a none R / L clicking Mighty Mouse, I really dislike these add-on descriptions that tell me to left click this or right click that.
PS, for other Mac users: do you know you can get there in the end by CTRL + click - you will get a submenu. It has taken me two years to discover this!
THIS ADD-ON SUCKS!!! NO INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW IT WORKS, NO BUTTONS, DON"T DOWNLOAD
It's always I wanted!!
If more spliting can be available it will be fantastic!
It's the closest thing to what I've been looking for, but can you make the split tab "lock" so when I click a link it opens a new tab?
Very useful for pages with long comments. I wish the options for splitting it in different directions were part of a submenu, though--I have the 3rd button on my trackball mapped to Expose on OS X, so I cannot split it towards the bottom, only the left or right.
Great addon, very helpful!
1. A BUTTON. Odd that there's no button for that one, it would be so useful... It should be simple enough to implement, I use AllInOne sidebar and I would add the button to its toolbar. If you clicked on it, it would open your currently selected tab into the panel. And if the panel is closed, it would either solely open it (with its previous content or blank page), either load the current tab into it, depending on some configuration option.
2. The possibility to have the panel vertical on right or left, or horizontal on top or bottom.
3. Since we can't open more than one panel, tabs should be allowed. I wonder if it would be possible to "embed" a new chrome container for an iFrame or WebPage into the panel...
4. An option menu, for specifying: when pressing the button panel, either automatically open the current page into the panel, either open the panel showing the previous content - if the button is clicked when the panel is already opened, the choice to do a close panel command or to refresh its content with the current selected tab; The location of the panel (top, bottom, left, right).
works great! exactly what i was looking for!
Other plugins don't seems to have effect on the new created panel though (better Gmail 2, google enhancer, ad block+) ... it would also be great to add an address bar to be able to change the content without having to drop links onto that new panel...
Keep up the good work!
works with Firefox 3, if you deactivate the compatibility-check:
-> Right Click -> New -> Boolean: extensions.checkCompatibility
=> install the addon
Have fun :)
max1million it seems that your add on affects the close buttons of the tabs, it makes them disappear even thought the preference browser.tabs.closeButtons is set to '1' ie default. Apart from that Split Pannel is really useful .
This is fantastic! I love it! It makes working on multiple windows much easier. Is there anything like this for Excel or Word?
A good extension for watching youtube and check email at the same time.
If possible, the following Feature would be great for improve
1. Allow tab in split panel(this make buffering for video better)
2. Allow temp file tranfer from tab to tab(cut loading time)
3. Some function for help scroll (like scroll to a certain position saved in profile)
Finally I want to know what is the difference between split tab and split panel
please take a look at my Buttons. They're curious:
