Google Chrome Dual View

by Chrome Blog on September 16, 2008

Yes, split Google Chrome down the middle in one tab. For the multi-tasking type this will enable you to create 2 side by side “panels” in Chrome in the same tab so you can browse two sites at once side by side.

Why not switch between tabs?

A few reasons, maybe you want to compare search results on both Google and Yahoo or do side by side comparisons of products. Maybe you want to reference something in the left panel and type about it in the right and switching tabs is a pain.. Well this will enable you to do just that. See examples:

A comparison search for Chrome on Google and Yahoo

Click for larger view

Reference content in one panel, write about it in the other

Click for larger view

To use simply drag and drop the following in your bookmarks…

Chrome Dual View

When clicked, a pop-up box asks for the first URL which will be the left panel and the URL you are currently on will be entered by default however this can be changed so in my dual search i entered Google.com for this one. Once you ok it, it will ask for the second URL which is the right panel and i entered Yahoo.com for my search comparison.

Simple, Google Chrome split down the middle with a double panel all in one tab.

Enjoy, also check out the Chrome Forums for a bunch of things like this.

Also here is an experimental translate bookmarklet:

i keep learning about more and more advantages and features with Chrome, with privacy, for example; now if only they would take care of it’s cookie management glitches…

2 Lars Bachmann 09.17.08 at 3:06 pm

Thx for sharing. I found a lot of great tricks for chrome on your site.
I’ll be back 😉

3 Icredpeople 09.18.08 at 9:49 am

Hi Can’t seem to get this work, the left window opens ok, the right window goes to a 404 screen?
Any Help with this thanks.

4 Dan 09.18.08 at 11:33 am

Dual view is great!!!

Request: Synchronize Scrolling.

5 Emrol 09.18.08 at 2:39 pm

I tried doing a search compare between Google and Yahoo!. The Yahoo! site seemed to break the frame and take over the full window. Is that what’ s supposed to happen?

6 Guru 09.18.08 at 11:02 pm

Very cool feature. Haven’t explored it fully, but wasn’t sure if the following were possible:

1. Closing just one frame and allowing the other to take over the whole tab. Not sure if this is currently possible – I couldn’t see it. All I could see is a way to open the frame in a separate tab/window and then closing it, as a workaround.
2. Resizing frames – i.e. making one larger than the other.
3. Right-clicking a link should give me the option of opening the link the other frame – this would really help in cases where I want one frame to contain my Google search results and open the links one by one in the other frame.
4. Synchronizing the scrollbars – as an option – not as the only option. I can see cases where I wouldn’t want the scrollbars to synchronize.
4. Not sure if this is a bug – if I open an empty tab and then try to initiate dual-view, nothing happens – the tab doesn’t split into two and neither of the sites load.

7 Greta 09.19.08 at 3:04 pm

This is a very cool feature. I’m not sure if this is a true bug or not, but when I click Chrome Dual View while viewing a page, the site that I enter into the javascript box is automatically added to the current url in the address bar. This is why Incredpeople was getting a 404 page.

For example, I’m browsing http://www.wowhead.com, and I want to dual view it. I enter http://www.wowhead.com in the first box, and http://www.google.com in the second. The left panel shows wowhead just fine, but the second panel gives me a 404 because it’s trying to find “www.wowhead.com/www.google.com”

8 MaiconMM 09.19.08 at 3:45 pm

It would be perfect if I could open the page in one side and the Javascript Console in the other. Or if each site had a url (omini?)bar

9 Erik 09.19.08 at 11:40 pm

this is great along with the other add ons but how do we use them without clicking on the link from this site

10 Erik 09.20.08 at 12:02 am

oh wait never mind you just add them as book marks

11 Chrome Blog 09.20.08 at 6:33 am

Icredpeople and Greta, i can’t replicate one side throwing a 404 at all. I went to wowhead.com and entered wowhead.com in the first box and Google.com in the second and it worked perfectly on 3 different PC’s and Chrome installs as you can see in this screenshot: http://i35.tinypic.com/2akl56t.png

Garu, yes you can resize the frames just click and hold the gray line down the center and drag it left and right.

Right clicking a link and having ‘open in another frame’ isn’t possible without an API to make extensions. You can right click a link and have it open in another tab or window though. As for synchronizing the scroll bars, i really don’t see this offering much advantage. You can scroll the frames with the mouse wheel by just hovering it over the particular frame without the need to click the frame to make it active first.

If your mouse is near the center divider, it’s just a matter of moving it left or right half an inch to scroll either one, which would be faster then manually switching options to do it.

MaiconMM, yes each side having it’s own Omnibar, bookmark access, reload/stop function would be ideal indeed. Unfortunately this isn’t possible, but as soon as Google give us the ability I will make it because it’s something i’d really like also.

12 John Arleth 09.21.08 at 7:56 pm

Oh, That is so cool. It may make 37 signals usable!

I can’t figure out how to drag this link into a bookmarks tab. I’m not that familiar with Chrome yet. Can someone explain how to do this?

14 marcelo 10.15.08 at 4:31 pm

Also, another use: for translation comparision.. excellent tool!! tks. BTW, there could be something like the “select and search” functionality for translators, something like “select and translate” and the selected text could be submitted to a selection of translating engines… :-)

15 Chrome Blog 10.15.08 at 7:04 pm

GreenBay: You literally click and drag the link over in to your bookmarks and drop it. Or you can right click and copy the link, then manually create a new bookmark and paste the link in the URL field.

marcelo: Interesting, ok here’s a very quick one it will translate the selected text using Google Translate in “Auto Detect Language” mode so it will work for any language out of the box. But.. it will only work for standard English characters, so stuff like “dans la mise en” will work but “prévisibles” will not due to the character thing above the “e”.

I know nothing about other languages, and i have been up 24 hours but i will look in to it tomorrow and see if i can get it working for all characters in every language. Have a try:

Edit: Change of plans, the code messed up the comments so i added it as a link at the bottom of the Dual View article.

16 Rick 10.16.08 at 12:18 pm

Looks like you have to have the full address in the fields. I was just putting http://www.yahoo.com and it wouldn’t work but when I left the http:// in front of it, then it did work properly.
So you NEED to have the:
else it won’t work.

17 Arjun 10.24.08 at 12:47 pm

Not sure if it’s just me, but it doesn’t seem to be working anymore. Just takes me to the first page.

18 Todd 10.24.08 at 12:53 pm

same here. doesn’t seem to work anymore.

19 poormann117 10.29.08 at 11:00 pm

the easiest way ive found to use dual view is to open a new tab and before doing anything use dual view. And be sure to use http:// for both urls

20 anonymous 11.06.08 at 1:23 pm

works on opera too!

21 Yousuf 11.08.08 at 8:06 am

I’ve been using a similar Translate bookmark since a long time now. I was using it in Firefox but it’s working well in Chrome too.

22 qewq 11.11.08 at 8:34 am

Where can I download this plug-in or that plugin will be avabillable only for full version of google chrome?

23 nitido 11.17.08 at 11:16 pm

It’s just some javascript and it works on firefox just fine.

24 usws 11.20.08 at 6:39 am

Uh, does Firefox have this? Haha.. Cool idea to have a dual view, especially for sites without AJAX editing and what not.

25 pouls29 11.26.08 at 1:36 pm

It would be cool to have the URL field highlighted automatically, so I don’t have to use the mouse while entering the URLs.

26 Lubo 12.10.08 at 3:17 am

at first I got this empty window on the right, I emptied the address bar tried again, and it works just fine, hmm . I will keep in touch

27 Bob 12.12.08 at 1:16 pm

Is there any way to refresh each frame instead of the whole page? When I hit the reload button, in any browser, it reverts back to the original page and the frames disappear.

28 Beti 01.14.09 at 7:15 am

Is it possible to bookmark (or save some other way) a dual view set of URLs, so I don’t have to enter them every time, along with the sizes of the two panes? I have two sites I use while working – my work schedule with tasks, and the timer for my tasks, and it is greatly convenient to have them both in one window, schedule being in the wider pane, and the timer narrow on the side. However, I need to enter both URLs and resize the panes every time I want to set up this view. It would be ideal if I could just open Chrome, and get to it with a single click. In Firefox you can probably do it when it prompts you to “Save and Quit” when exiting the application (haven’t tried myself). Thanks for your response :)

29 Break 01.18.09 at 1:22 pm

I’ve combined the Dual View and the Translate plugins into one:

Dual Translate


It displays the original page at the left side and the translated version at the right side!

Enjoy! 😉

I’m not sure why the link coud not be pasted properly. Part of the text was deleted. =( I will make another try.

37 Natty 04.07.09 at 12:44 am

I have used the dual view and it is working fine. But the dual view is split vertically I wanted a horizontal split. Hence I changed the javascript code to split it horizontally but it is not working. Can you tell me why?

Here is the code:

38 ChaCha Fance 04.26.09 at 1:31 am

Not working for me. Both side freeze up & then I have to go to Chrome task manager to even get the tab to close. =(

39 Dave 04.28.09 at 10:55 am

Nice idea, but doesn’t work for me. The left hand frame works fine, but the right hand frame always brings up a 404 from the website of the left frame, e.g. bbc.co.uk on the right, brings up a bbc 404 page on the right when it should be opening google.co.uk

Does not work at all from the Chrome home page.

40 Chris 05.15.09 at 1:39 pm

Why is this called Google Chrome Dual View??

This works in Firefox, Opera, etc. …

It’s just javascript, not a plugin.

41 Brad 05.16.09 at 3:28 pm


The following code gives you horizontal split:

If the code displayed above is messed up, all you need to do is replace the word “cols” with the word “rows” in the original (do not include the quotes).

42 Matt Z 05.17.09 at 6:33 am

Chris, nowhere in the post does it mention being a plugin.

Why is it called “Google Chrome Dual View”? Well, even the brain dead can see this is a Chrome site and the code enables you to view dual URL’s on the same tab.

Sheesh, grow a brain mate.

To the ones saying it doesn’t work, you are doing something wrong it WORKS PERFECTLY. Here is a screenshot i just done with the above comments on one side and Google on the other:


Thanks a bunch for this useful snippet.

44 Kmac 07.05.09 at 5:19 pm

I noticed that i have to type ‘http://’ in the text box at the beginning for some websites to appear, but not for all.

Is there a way to write the code so that ‘http://’ is already in the text field awaiting for the rest to be typed in?

Nice app, it works great for researching and writing. Plus i can set it up and pull the tab out to its own window.

45 jeremy 07.08.09 at 1:39 am

you can scroll both at the same time if you use mouse to scroll on one page and the arrows to scroll on the other. You just have to click the page you want to scroll with the arrows, and put your mouse over the one you want to scroll with the mouse.

46 Tom 07.30.09 at 3:07 am

This may be useful to some people, but I find it faster to just drag the second tab out of the window (it becomes another window) and place the two windows side by side. There is a reason why Windows is called “Windows” :-). I guess for people with low resolutions, this extension may be more practical (my screen rez is 1400 x 1050). Good effort nonetheless.

Hi, I’m new to Google Chrome (through no fault of my own)

Something happened to my computer and I am forced to use Google Chrome instead of Internet Explorer (which is what I’ve used my whole life, so I’m used to it).

I’ll have no problem with Google Chrome as soon as I get EVERYTHING working. I can’t play some games, or see some pictures because it says, and I quote: “The required plugin is not installed”.

No problem, I thought. Turns out, I’ve installed two types of plugins (flash and adobe/java) and nothing has changed.

I want to love Google Chrome considering I have to live with it, so PLEEEASSEEE help me. My email is provided, if not then it’s:

I just want to use my internet without having to mess with these constant inconveniences.

This works in Internet Explorer 8 (probably earlier), Firefox 3.6 (probably earlier), Chrome 4.1 (probably earlier) and I see Opera too. I suspect it also works in Safari.

It’s buggy in Chrome though, only working half the time. The rest it won’t actually load the dual tabs. It works perfectly in Firefox and IE though.

60 Alex 03.23.10 at 9:47 am

p.s – As others have said, you must add the http:// for it to work.

why the hell can’t I download these extensions?

every time I try choose to download a chrome extension I get one of these web pages where I see no place to download the extension?

when I choose download I should immediately be taken to a page that shows me (without reading and without scrolling down) the download button or better yet why not let the download begin when I click the download button? Isn’t that what the user expects?

don’t reply with some bullshit that I have to join some forum or such. I’ll fucking DoS and spam your fucking site until the end of time. If you require me to join something to download they you fraudulently didn’t say that right up front – you fucking assholes.

http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/scoreboard in frame 2.
It splits then just goes back to the whichever file was put in first.

A Sandro Nesta is born once in a blue moon (or once in an Inter Champions League victory if you need a secondary comparison). A class defender who embodied the Milan franchise to perfection, and was an integral figure in the teams laundry list of trophies acquired in the past decade. http://www.airmax90salers.com
The 36 year old Nesta leaves Milan having played well over 300 matches for the club. A Laziale by birth, Sandro moved to the rossonero outfit a decade ago, and became a key clog in the center of defense.

So what if it’s a Chrome site? It’s still not a Chrome exclusive plugin. It’s javascript. It’ll work on ANY browser that supports javascript. So there’s no need to call it “Google Chrome Dual View” because it’s just Dual View for ANY browser, regardless if this is a Chrome site or not.
