Widescreen fun.I've hacked up a scroll synchronized dual or tri pane viewer. As you scroll the first pane, the second stays one page ahead. With a 1400 width scren this is just barely useful for things like slashdot threads. At 1600, it's likely to be great -- inspired by a blog post about a OSX app.
The "page down" button doesn't generate scroll events (bug?), but that should scroll the first page two screenfulls to avoid revisiting content previewed in the 2nd page.
I developed this in chrome, but it should (but doesn't) work with priveledges granted in Mozilla from http. It needs ExternalCapture, BrowserRead, and BrowserRight access. Feedback welcome, looks like a bug.
If I work the kinks out, I'll wrap it into an installer. In the mean time, if anyone wants to play with the chrome code, drop me a line.
Check the elastic windows project for more widescreen ideas, heavily patented alas.
