Chrome OS is a new operating system, with all its strengths and weaknesses. It is essentially a Chrome browser and every window is a browser tab. One of its major weaknesses is that it doesn’t let you open multiple windows or tabs on the screen at the same time. So you have to keep tab-switching between windows, which is simply tiresome to do every time.

There is a feature in ChromeOS called “panels” that lets you have multiple open panels at the bottom of the screen. Panels can be resized and popped out like a Gmail chat window. However, you can’t load websites in these panels.

Enter Panelize. It is a specific extension for Chrome OS, which lets you do just that. With it you can load different websites in different panels and have them open all at once on the screen. No more tab switching. With Panelize, you can edit a document and watch a YouTube video at the same time. If you open the full websites, you will have to do a lot of scrolling, so try to load the mobile version of the apps and websites whenever possible.

    If you want to view two websites side by side you could always use to load them side by side and even share the two side by side sites with your friends or bookmark it for quick access, for example here is "livings-roupon"
