How to split current browser window into two in Chrome [Tip]

To open a couple of website pages at the same time, you can open a new browser window. However, that doesn’t open the windows side by side. With the Dualless extension for Google Chrome you can simulate a duel monitor setup that splits your browser window in two with a selected ratio.

Head over to this page [1] to add Dualless to Google Chrome. Press the + Free button on that page to install extension. Then you’ll find a Duelless – Split / Merge Windows button on the toolbar as shown below.
