How to get the split screen in Windows 7?

I would like to be able to get two web pages displayed at once on my windows 7 system!! What I want to avoid is enabling the Aero Snap? I thought I overheard my IT guy say that it could be done without it? I have had problems with Aero in general. Like I wanted to do the cool thing with my files where they blow one after another through the screen like a deck of cards and you can stop to look at one or you can keep it going? How do I enable that feature? I think it makes the files like glass tiles and you can just see through them as they move along. Then I want to be able to have the two web pages at the same time on the screen? Is it true that you can not view secure pages when you use this feature? I guess I have some research to do, however sometimes I do not want to just Google something and hope for the best answer!

another way...

get 2 programs on the screen, minimize them and then drag one as far as you possibly can to one side of the screen, then let go of the mouse. same on the other program, except you put it on the other side of the screenHappy
