Secondary window functionality

Currently, links are not able to be opened in a secondary draggable Shift window (i.e. if you want to display an opened link in a new window on a secondary monitor). Subsequently, there are some scenarios where links will not open in a secondary window:


1. Gmail - Compose in a new window


Unlike in the old version of Shift, clicking the "compose in new window" button will open a new tab rather than a secondary window.



Status: Investigating¬†‚Ź≥

Currently, secondary windows are not available in Shift. Our Product and Development Teams are investigating what this could look like in a future update of Shift.
