My browser window (Opera) usually occupies its own virtual
screen on my desktop (atached to a hotkey) and fits the
whole screen size. There are quite a few sites that I
visit that benefit from a wide browser window, such as
map services, and a self-written CGI app that I use to
manage my digital photos. Also, the side-by-side colored
diff view of cvsweb works well with a wide window.
