    I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but you can have Safari side by side in multitasking mode if you open the News app via the multitasking app switcher while in Safari. Select a story from the news app, then click on the website link at the bottom.

    The only issue is that there is no way to directly navigate to another site inside the News app since there isn't an address bar, you can only click on links to additional sites. But this is still a cool workaround until September.

    An even better workaround would be opening Safari and then Chrome or another 3rd party browser (when apps are updated to support split view).

    Of course that is ideal, but still two months away. I have a feeling safari will eventually allow two side by side windows natively, so hopefully we won't need Chrome.

    if you could do this directly in Safari that would be awesome!
