This tutorial will help you how to split screen into two using Google Chrome Plugin called Frame Two Pages.

2. For our example, we want to split our screen into two different column sites so we can compare two driving websites, one is rta.nsw.gov.au and the other is drivingtest.com.au. In the drivingtest.com.au tab, click on the Frame two pages icon frame two pages icon in your browser toolbar.

3. A pop-up window will open, asking you if you want to split it in as a column (vertically) or as a row (horizontally). For example, we want to split screen into two different columns we will type “1″. But if you want to split it horizontally, just type “2″. Click OK.

4. If you click Cancel, it will still proceed splitting the windows. 5. As you can see, it automatically made the left side rta.nsw.gov.au. This is because whatever site is in the left side of the tab where in you clicked the Frame Two Page plugin icon, this will be the default site for the left portion of the newly created tab. Right side of the new tab will also be automatically the page where you clicked the icon, in this example drivingtest.com.au.
