If this is already possible, I'm going to feel SO stupid.
Yesterday, I was at the coffee shop. I had my iPad and I wanted to follow the scores on the Australian Open site. I also wanted to read a long article as I was doing it. And I had my iPad in landscape mode, with a couple tabs open, and it occurred to me that it would be really cool if one could make both tabs visible, like split-screen. I could resize the scores tab so that I could see the scores, and the other article tab would be larger and visible, and I could scroll, etc., while the scores tab re-loaded as normal.
Is this something that is possible in programming? I know too little to understand how it all works. But I think, especially with iPad, given the size, it would be something that would be do-able (from the perspective of being able to see both tabs).
