I know that "focus page rows on mouse hover" exists for mac users. However, I was wondering if there could be an option that would focus the sidewise panel, rather than specific rows. Focusing the rows on hover makes it easy to accidentally pick the wrong tab, and it still takes two clicks to remove or hibernate a tab. If the mouse would automatically focus on the sidebar as a whole, then only one click would be needed to access any of the tab interface and behave much more like Windows.
Is there a way to have a Sidewise window appear on multiple screens? In other words, I have a Home instance of Chrome and a Business instance of Chrome, but only a single instance of Sidewise...
Not currently possible that I know of, if you're using Chrome's multiple-users functionality. I daresay you could make it work if you were to use two instances of Chrome with different user-data directories, as described here: http://www.wikihow.com/Create-Multiple-Google-Chrome-Profiles
Supporting multiple sidebars in an open (fully customizeable) way is somewhere on the Sidewise todo list.
Feature request for a real Chrome Sidebar. Please vote for it. https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=319130
I think the app is great so far. Especially good for a beta, can't wait to see it perfected! Just a note -- MalwareBytes.org blocks the Sidewise phone-home IP because you are serving from Voxility, a host that is known to support spam/malware/etc..
which prevents tabs from loading until you look at then. This saves memory and time when starting up chrome, especially if you have lots of tabs.
The only problem is that the lazy tabs extension blocks the sidewise extension. It will not open when clicking the button, nor automatically open at startup. If I disable Lazy Tabs, the Sidewise extension starts working again.
The question is whether the pop-up of the Sidewise sidebar uses a mechanism that is blocked by Lazy Tabs, and whether there is another way to do it.
That was a unique and very convenient with multiple open tabs feature of Opera.
If it is also possible optionally to close altogether the tab bar in the browser itself - even better. It is not useful with many open tabs anyway and not needed when Sidewise is installed.
