Sidefari – Web browsing companion to Safari by Francisco Cantu

Sidefari - Web browsing companion to Safari Screenshots


Splitscreen multitasking is only supported on iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, and iPad Pro.

Sidefari is a simple web browser that is designed to act as a companion to Safari.

With multitasking in iOS 9, Sidefari uses the new Safari View Controller to show an extra Safari-based browser on the side of your iPad's screen. Now you'll be able to have two websites simultaneously on the same screen enjoying the full benefits of Safari, like content blockers.

Sidefari features:
+ Compatible with iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, and iPad Pro
+ Safari View Controller integration; optimized for multitasking
+ Included action extension to open URLs in-app from anywhere (that includes Safari!)
+ History always visible for quick an easy access to a previously-browsed website
+ Option to delete and/or disable history

How to use in three easy steps:
1. Open Safari
2. Swipe from the right edge of the iPad's screen to bring up the multitasking window and select Sidefari
3. Tap the separator between Safari and Sidefari to stick the second window on screen

Customer Reviews

I would have paid $9.99 (5 stars)
Thanks for this app it's exactly what split view / slide over needed. Safari is the only browser I use. So before your app 2 Safari browsers open at the same time was not possible. Also thanx to MacStories for the article highlighting the app!

The Best Complement to Safari in Split View mode. (5 stars)
Sidefari allows you to have two Safari windows side-by-side in SplitView with the same cookies, etc. You can easily send between both apps using a Safari button in Sidefari and a Send to Sidefari button in Safari.

Clever App (5 stars)
Split view just got a lot more useful. I love that I can 'open in' Sidefari from Safari. Great job on this well thought out app.
