Editors' Review

+

If you've ever found yourself switching back and forth between browser tabs, or between your browser and a text document, and wished there was some way you could just look at both at the same time, wish no longer. Split Screen is an extension for Chrome that lets you view two Web sites side-by-side, or view one Web site next to a text editor. It's extremely handy and easy to use, and we think it's a great tool to add to Chrome's capabilities.

Once installed, Split Screen appeared as an icon to the right of Chrome's address bar. Clicking the icon split the window in two, with separate address bars in each pane. The default view places a text editor on the left side and Split Screen options on the right, but users can set either pane to contain the text editor, a blank page, or a specific Web site by default. Users can also customize the size of each pane and easily toggle between a vertical and horizontal split. The only major drawback to Split Screen that we identified was its inability to display secure Web pages, which means that it can't be used with e-mail or many social networking sites. But if you need to do a side-by-side comparison of two sites, take notes as you study online material, or do anything else that requires frequent switching between tabs, Split Screen is a great Chrome extension to have.

Like most Chrome extensions, Split Screen installs and uninstalls without issues.

    "THIS app will do the job!"

    May 06, 2011   |   By jonseemore

    Version: Split Screen 0.8.39

    Pros

    Split Screen gives you 2 equal screens to use at the same time, either up and down (vertical) OR crosswise (horizontal) so you can see or do 2 different things at once (multitask). You can read a webpage and watch a game on espn3.com. I love it!

    Cons

    NO cons at all, it does just what it says it'll do. NO ONE should find fault with it.... unless maybe they are just a tad mentally inept. :-)

    Summary

    This is an excellent little piece of software for anyone who has the mental wherewithal to put 2 and 2 together... AND - you DON'T have to be a Rhodes Scholar to do that ! SOME people just bring out the sarcasm in me.....
