Someone know any browser with integrated dual view in which it is possible to navigate independently in both windows? I know they exist and would like to avoid javascript booklets like google chrome dual view as they are a potential source of virus entry. Thanks!

You can write this yourself using HTML, CSS and Javascript.
Use two text fields for the address and two iframes for the pages to load.

I've written something similar for private use, see www.jfbraun.com/eusearch.
You're welcome to steal anything you want (pay attention to the CSS for aligning the iframes, which is the tricky part).

@Joakim: Thanks a lot for your generous offer, but in my previous post I said I would like to avoid using javascript. What you are suggesting me, is exactly what the google chrome dual view booklet does, but I do not think it would be necessary to invent the wheel twice. I know that there is at least one of such browsers, as I used it ages ago but I do not remember his name. Many thanks for your help anyway.

Hi Pablo,

This function exists in my Maxthon 2.1.4 (just press F10). I use it almost daily and it works perfectly.

So you're reluctant to use javascript for safety reasons, but you'd happily use some obscure (or age-old AND obscure) browser that is inevitably a lot less safe than the current version of any of the major browsers.
I'd suggest opening two windows side by side.

You can do it easily in Firefox with the help of a small add on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4287/

Cheers

@Nikita:

Thanks a lot. I believe this is what I was looking for.

Neither me. So far I know, I usually use Firefox latest version (and about:config...)
