What is sidebar?

Sidebar is a tool on the Gener8 Browser that allows you to have speedy access to websites and more without even having to open a new tab or window 😎.

Multitask smarter with Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and more readily available for you in the sidebar. That’s right, you can chat, search and browse AT THE SAME TIME 😱.

How to customise your sidebar

You can customise your sidebar to fit all of your needs 🎨😎

By default, the sidebar includes apps such as Facebook Messenger, YouTube and WhatsApp.

❌ You can remove any of these from your sidebar by simply right-clicking on the icon and selecting ‘Remove’.

🔇 Want to be free of distracting notifications, you can also mute each pin!

✍️ Edit your sidebar pins, changing their names and URLs so you can hit up your favourite YouTube channel with just one click 🖱

➕ Add a new website or tool to your sidebar by navigating to your search bar and selecting ‘Pin to sidebar’ 👌

↔️ Resize your sidebar to take up however much of the window you like

🙌 … or if you decide you want to switch to a full tab, click the ellipsis in the top right and select ‘move to a tab’.

Toggle the sidebar on and off

If you want to hide the sidebar (you may want it out of the way whilst binge-watching the latest series on Netflix) you can toggle it on and off as you please ⏯.

Look to the top right corner of the Gener8 Browser and you’ll see the sidebar icon. Simply click the icon to hide/unhide the sidebar 🖱.

Can’t find the sidebar?

Make sure your sidebar is turned 'on' by visiting gener8://settings/ and toggling on 'Always show sidebar' ✅.
