This is the official user feedback forum for Sidewise, the Google Chrome extension that brings a dockable sidebar and Tree Style Tabs to Chrome.

Chrome fullscreen view on multi-monitor is fab!

dsl101 7 years ago updated by Joel Thornton 7 years ago 0

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.

Standard sessions to be opened at startup

Max Muster 7 years ago updated by Muntoo Meddler 7 years ago 1

I'd love to have a standard session to be opened at startup. Be it a simple branch of tabs  or a folder, a single tab with a hibernated folder (with some sort of "startup bookmarks") or even a complex tree with several branches, folders (windows?) and hibernated tabs.

The next step would be to open different sessions on startup depending on time, date or other variables...


access permission

First off, I'd just like to say what a great job you have done. I have been looking for something like Sidewise on Chrome as I make extensive use of tree style tabs on ff and the lack of a decent alternative was stopping me (until now) from making more use of Chrome.

My question is regrading access permissions. Why does Sidewise require permission to my data on all websites?
