Basically, I now have a new monitor set up that is rotated so it's in portrait. This is highly beneficial for web browsing (though my main purpose was PDFs and multi-tasking)—normally! This is because my portrait monitor has a resolution of 1050x1680, so its horizontal resolution is just about enough to work for most websites nowadays. This presented a problem, though. I often run a lot of tabs. Now with Chrome on this monitor, as opposed to my landscape monitor, all of the tabs are narrow triangles with no icons, thus having to awkwardly find out what each one is.
Sidewise seemed as if it could be an ideal solution for this. However, even at its minimal width, the Chrome window on many pages displays a horizontal scroll bar, making navigation less easy. Would you be able to introduce an icon view? You could move the buttons at the top vertically, and then have all tab names displayed by mouse-overs, if you get what I mean. :)
Trying to understand what you mean: are you essentially looking for a sidebar that displays horizontally (e.g. across the top of the screen) and just shows tab icons instead of labels too?
Until the recent update, Sidewise had been pretty consistent. But there seems to have been some regressions - I'm getting multiple 'Last Session' rows appearing, and also tabs in the wrong order or completely missing (see the Birmingham Airport tab below).
When I click on a row for a window that's hidden behind other windows, sidewise does not bring it up
This should be fixed in today's release.
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.
