Tile opened tabs in Firefox with Split Browser

One of the latest features of Opera version 9.5 is the ability to arrange tabs in cascade or in a grid. Open source developers were quick to come up with yet another extension to mimic the same effect in Firefox. The addon called Split Browser, allows you to split the viewing window of your browser so that you can view multiple tabs at the same time.

Split Browser is flexible and you can arrange the tabs in whatever way you like. To be honest, it's a little confusing and except the horizontally tiled, and the grid layout, any other layout pattern is essentially useless. The one and only use of this addon is if you want to compare multiple web pages, or want to keep a particular page on display at all times. Going by the download figures, however, it seems that it's quite a popular addon.

  1. garbage addon, it doesnt tile the tabs, it just makes new windows for em

    so you lose all the TAB functionality, like reload all tabs, or browse between tabs, as theyre all just new resized windows

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
