While Apple introduced a Split View mode in iOS 9 for iPad users to be able to use two apps side-by-side, it did not allow users to open two Safari windows side-by-side. A new app called Sidefari from developer Francisco Cantu (via MacStories) allows users to have two webpages open side-by-side to meet various browsing needs.
The app works by using Safari View Controller to open a second webpage via Split View. To activate Sidefari, all a user has to do is open the Slide Over app picker and choose Sidefari. The app also works in multiple sizes, allowing users to use Sidefari to take up either half the screen or smaller. Sidefari is only available for the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro as they are the only devices that support multitasking.
Sidefari for iPad is available in the App Store for $0.99. [Direct Link]

With that being said I appreciate the iPad features of iOS 9, and I expect the same effort from Apple moving forward.
Who buys a Windows PC to exclusively run Microsoft software? Nobody. Everybody has some sort of non-Microsoft tool or software to enhance it. 3rd party browsers are very popular.
But if you're stuck in the mindset that mouse support = power-user or file system = power-user, then it's always going to be hard for you to adapt when something different emerges. And that, my friend, is your problem.
