The Discussion

  • User profile image

    Nice.  Would be nice if there where snap points between monitors on multimon systems without having to use <windows>+<left>

  • User profile image

    That's very nice.


    It's still too tedious though:


    - first drag and drop left tab

    - then drag and drop right tab


    Instead one could do this:


    - drag one tab over another, when somewhere over the other tab, an effect occurs that signals a split view action

    - drop the tab and the browser should auto-snap the two tabs to the left and right of the desktop - or even within the browser
