Have you ever found an interesting website that you want to keep track of while you browse for other things on the web? Or perhaps you want to always see your online calendar without having to open another app? How about comparing multiple websites?
If you’re running Firefox, a popular add-on called Fox Splitter (formerly Split Browser) can help with that, but at the time of writing unfortunately, it is not compatible with Firefox 4.0 (does not work properly if force installed). However, a less popular but similar add-on exists, and it’s called Tile Tabs.
After you install the add-on, you will notice several new options added to Firefox’s general right click context menu. You can also add a Tile Tabs button to the toolbars by right clicking the toolbar and selecting Customize.
There are options to tile an existing or new tab onto the current one or duplicate a tab and then tile it, or just tile all the tabs. If you right click on a link, you can also choose to open the link in a tile.
When a tab is split, you will notice a blue box around the favicon. You can still switch between tabs as usual and the address bar corresponds to the currently selected tab.
