Kind of a weird bug -
Basically, periodically, sidewise attempts to authorize http sessions with hibernated tabs -
As I work with an enormous amount of equipment, this occasionally results in several hundred routers, none of which I am interested in dealing with at the moment, simultaneously spamming me with authorization requests.
I suspect that this may be connected to Chrome losing internet connectivity, but I have not confirmed this.
It's also important to note that the HTTP auth attempts come up as a sub-focused window of the sidewise tab, not of the main chrome screen - not sure if that helps track it down or not.
I always try to either only keep temporary tabs in the same window or tabs that are connected to each other. So when hibernating the last open window I wouldn't want sidewise to open a new tab in the same window in order to prevent chrome from closing, but rather to open a new window (with a new tab of course), so that the window I hibernated stays as is.
Dual monitors on a laptop. Tried redetecting monitors, Tried resetting defaults, and everything short of uninstalling it.
It's going to force me to remove it.
Sidewise keeps crashing while using some websites. One of the culprits is:
Everytime I open any page on the MSDN website, Sidewise either crashes immediately, or shortly after. Hibernating the MSDN tab and then waking it crashes 100% of the time.
- Add the video-driver-causing-crash issue/solution to the upcoming FAQ
- Look for additional ways of reliably acquiring the correct favicon for sites like msdn.microsoft.com
I can find no way to get the window containing a tab to be raised (displayed, exposed, unminized) by sidewise, other then selecting the window row itself. I want to do it from the tab row because I often have many tabs in each window, and sometimes the window row is far away.
Just realised I can get a cleaner look by putting Chrome in full-screen mode - when on the right hand monitor, sidewise sits on the right-hand edge of the left monitor, and gives loads of browser space, plus easy access to tabs.
Now, if sidewise could replicate the bookmark and/or toolbar from Chrome, there'd be no need to have the chrome window at all!
Glad you have found a way that works well for you.
A bookmarks sidebar pane is definitely on the todo list, though replicating Chrome's own bookmark-bar probably won't happen.
