Split windows, allow multiple file browser tabs to be opened

From time to time I need to open the same directory in two windows, or compare the differences in the two directories. However, XnViewMP does not have a "New->Window" option, which causes some inconvenience.
Therefore, I suggest adding a "New->Window" option and making the tabs like a web browser where you can drag and drop to create windows.
Also, I suggest adding a window splitting feature, like MS Word, where a window can be split into left, right or top and bottom parts, showing different scrollbar positions of the same directory.
This will make it easier to compare the differences in the table of contents.
