Load sites—side by side

What is Side|Side?
'Side|Side' is a Chrome extension that upgrades browsing experience by loading websites side by side through a simple click or key combination. It further allows the user to manage the orientation, positions of the panes or even add more panes. However, it's essential to understand that it relies heavily on iFrames and not all websites support loading via iFrame.

When browsing a page a simple right click (or control + click) will reveal a contextual menu to open the current page within Side by Side.

A discrete options menu is located at the top (or left, depending on orientation) which allows the user to rotate the orientation, flip the position of panes, or add panes.

*Note, this extension relies on iFrames, but not all websites can be loaded via iFrame.

This is exact what I have been looking for. I love it, but here are some feed back for you. Chrome Version 118.0.5993.118 (Official Build) (64-bit). Windows 11 Pro Left/right work fantastic. "Open with top/bottom split" doesn't work, It open as left/right. Could you also make it to multiple screen. - 2x2 (4 Screen) - 1 top 2 bottoms - 2 tops 1 bottoms - 1 left 2 rights - 2 lefts 1 right

Amazing -- I've tried so many extensions but this is the ONLY one that gave me 2 working columns within the same tab! Great thanks dev! Please maintain and update this awesome extension 💛 PS: Top/ bottom function is not work yet. Hope it will be made to work soon 🙏
