I know someone made a greasemonkey script for Firefox that provides this functionality, but for those of us that don't/can't use firefox, is this a feature that can be added to the website?  Thanks.

I guess I'd be that 'someone'... and would also love to see the greasemonkey script made obsolete! :-)
Having said that, it should be noted that the script works just fine under google chrome. Just click the install button, and chrome will convert it to an extension auto-magically! (All of my biblia grease monkey scripts are tested under both Firefox and chrome!)

Well, at work I'm locked into IE without the ability to add any extensions to it, so I'll have to wait until the feature is native.

Had a few spare minutes, so made a system which should hopefully bring the tweak to people stuck on IE without the ability to add any extensions.

Basically, you add a specially crafted "favourite" in IE, and then try to navigate to it while at biblia.com.

More details (and the actual favourites here: http://cometbaybaptist.org.au/bibliatweaks.html )

 

I don't actually run IE, but this should work. If not, please let me know.

There is a full screen option, but unfortunately you can only view one resource at a time, as far as I can tell. It would be nice if you could view both panels in full screen.

It would also be really nice if you could open up more than just 2 panels.

Ryan Hall:

Agreed - it would be *fantastic* to be able to open more than just 2 panels. With two monitors, I can have several resources up at once. 

It's not perfect, but there's a towards-a-workaround extension for chrome/firefox http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/126184 Basically, if you middle-click on the book cover of the left-hand pane it pops it out as a "fullscreen" window. You could then send the right hand frame "fullscreen" in the original window. Voila - two full-screen windows.

(Actually, you could do this manually: open biblia.com in two different windows - and choose "fullscreen" for the left hand panel in one window and for the right hand panel in the other window).

Does that make sense?!?!?!

While we're wishing - I'd love to see some of the nicer features from the Android app appear in biblia - things like "Word Study", "Passage Guide" etc. I know these are available at mobile.logos.com - but it's really irritating having to switch between either my phone and biblia or mobile.logos and biblia. Those of us running Linux see these tools as the scraps under the table for us to eat - and we keep asking for more!

You can get close to having both panels fullscreen in a single window by running two extensions/IE Favourites - the "hide sidebar" and  "widescreen biblia" options. More details (and the actual favourites here: http://cometbaybaptist.org.au/bibliatweaks.html )

The hide sidebar worked great with my version of IE, but the Widescreen Toggler didn't (IE8).  Great Work!!!
