This is certainly possible. I have one monitor on VGA at 1920 X 1080 and another on HDMI at the same resolution. The second monitor is in extended mode, allowing normal display on the second display. I can open tabs and move them to the second display and have multiple tabs on both.

If you don't need to have each monitor split into separate virtual screens, then the window snapping feature built into Windows can be useful. For example, you can use it to arrange two browser windows into equally sized windows taking up half of each screen. It's more advanced in Windows 10, but in Windows 7, Aero Snap has this basic functionality. Try clicking on a browser window and then pressing Win + Left Arrow. Then select or open another browser window and press Win + Right Arrow.
If you do prefer to divide your monitor into virtual screens, then software is needed like Ultraview Desktop Manager (not free). I could perhaps see the attraction if using large 4K monitors, but otherwise, dividing a screen into several virtual ones seems problematic to me. For one, if you do want a full screen view for some reason, you're bound to have to change some setting before you can do that.
I haven't used any personally but some freeware apps which look like they provide more advanced window arrangement features than Windows, rather than dividing single monitors into virtual displays are mentioned here - Online Tech Tips.
