For a vertical orientation of zotero you may try the "Tile Tabs" add-on for Firefox.
"Split panel" works fine with Zotero, but is only compatible up to Firefox 3.5, not 3.6.
(Take care not wasting your time: "split browser", now "Fox Splitter" is incompatible with zotero. zotero will not start with "split browser").

This would be so fabulous that I cannot believe only 32 requests for it have been made in 3 years. This is request 33.

Just adding my voice to the yes, please, please, chorus.

Me too! The Vertical space Zotero currently consumes is now far more expensive both on desk- and lap-tops than horizontal space. I would use a side-by-side layout in a heartbeat.

Count me in! In fact, I want this so much that I tried to make a mock-up of a zotero w/ sidebar sometime ago, and gathered other posts related to zotero sidebar and tabs requests in this forum thread, with some mock-up screenshots on flickr, take a look if you like:

yes, that's cool, and i want a side bar for Word too...that wold be impresive, amazing...that would be a leap, a big jump for Zotero...because just rigth now, the add-in of endnote in Word is better (i think that is the only thing better in Endnote than in Zotero)...Endnote is dead, long live Zotero. ; )

I absolutely LOVE Zotero, and promote it all I can, and maybe a bit more, so First things first -
That said, I would love a sidebar in both the browser (#1 priority), and in word.
Fantastic offering, keep up the great work.

Definitely another vote for sidebar. Thank you!

Just +1 for the sidebar here. Like most laptop users my screen is much wider than it is long, I'd prefer to load zotero in a vertical sidebar (wouldn't have to be 'the' sidebar, i could live with it on the right, for instance). Thanks!

one more vote for a sidebar :)

Zotero + Vertical/Sidebar = Win.

Agree. Want Sidebar!

one more vote. thanks!

i too wish for the same

one more vote...
... and until it (may be) done:
workaround for firefox users:
1) install the "tile tabs" addon
2) get used to work with it :-)

It would be sensefull to look at the firebug engine to organise the appearence. It solves this problem wunderfull.

Another vote. This seems so obvious that I don't understand why its not getting any serious attention (or is there a workaround that I missed?).

Another vote for the sidebar - is this feature all that difficult to implement? Alternative: a small "always on top" window for the standalone?!

(Zotero for Firefox as a fully functioning Zotero will go away in the not-too-distant future given changes in Firefox. So the browser sidebar is definitely not going to happen anymore.)
