Hey guys :) I have found this AWESOME website, that lets you have four browser windows in one. its originally used for google, hence the name : http://www.googlegooglegooglegoogle.com.br    , however, you can just search for a site in google and go to it. The way I have just started using this, is to have Youtube in one panel, Forvo in another, Linguee in another, and google translate in the last. So I can watch a video, and if I hear a word I want to look up, I just type it into Linguee, Forvo and google translate. I then get a single word translation with Google, a context example with Linguee, and a pronounciation by Forvo, all without having to change tab! which trust me, can be annoying when your browser freezes often. Ill show you guys what it looks like, with a screenshot :)

The adress again : http://www.googlegooglegooglegoogle.com.br

While that's kind of cool - I find that plugins that split your browser screen for you are more useful because you can change how much space each one takes up, and in your case you could make the video take up most of the screen and have the various translations in other panels within the window. In Firefox it's called "Split Browser" - you'd like it way more than that site.

Also, it can be much easier to just have several browser windows open at once and go into settings to remove everything but the top bar with the "X" on it to reduce the apce they take up. To avoid messing with your favourite browser you could do this with a secondary browser for all but the most important window.

Great idea to keep them all open at once for your task! I just don't like the equal spacing and the browsing limitations from the few options within one. But it was a clever idea for the guy who came up with it! Thanks for sharing!

I used to do similar with Bingle.nu . Had something in French or Italian in one window, and WordReference in the other. Very handy! Didn't realise that Firefox could do the split screen thing for me though! Thanks Benny!
