This tutorial explains how to open multiple websites in a single tab in Google Chrome.
Normally we need to open multiple tabs to browse different websites or webpages. But, it becomes difficult to manage tabs while doing some research. If you want to refer to multiple webpages together, then it would be really nice to have them open in a single tab. And that is exactly what Split Screen extension for Chrome does.
Using this extension, you can divide the tab into multiple rows and columns, and each cell can be used to open a webpage. So, on the same tab, you can open a Yotube video, read RSS feeds, check news, and open your favorite tech blog ILoveFreeSoftware.com.
The above screenshot shows multiple websites opened by me in a single tab using this great extension.
