Benefits of using Upwork in Sidekick

We see the future of online work in using not desktop apps but web versions and integrating them into a browser. This gives you better control of your virtual work environment, saves your time, and helps to retain your focus. There are numerous advantages in fusing Upwork and Sidekick compared to Upwork desktop app.

Save resources

  • Memory-wise, integration with Sidekick is a better choice if your desktop app size is more than 100MB.
  • Any document or tab launched in Chromium needs an isolated computing process to run. It leads to excessive memory consumption. Sidekick uses one framework to run similar processes. It significantly frees up computing power and takes multitasking to a new level.
  • Save even more memory with Sidekick’s AI-based tab-suspender that analyzes and offloads unused tabs.

Sidebar integration

  • You can access Upwork directly from your Sidebar. It keeps Upwork at your fingertips and your tab strip free of clutter while Upwork desktop app consumes more resources.
  • You can also access it by using a keyboard shortcut Option-N, where N is the position of Upwork in your Sidebar.

Support for multiple accounts

Right-click on Upwork icon and add as many accounts as you wish. You can be logged into all of your accounts at the same time or you can easily switch between them.


  • Right-click on Upwork icon to search through recent documents or to open our Global Search feature (Option-F) to search through all Upwork messages.
  • Type Upwork in your search query to filter results. Open the file in a new tab or just copy a link, everything from one handy window.

Split view

Click Upwork while holding Option key to open it in split view. Work with Upwork and your other documents or apps side-by-side like never before.
