    OK so i was mucking about and i found that if you put the mac rumors homepage on a gig width the red article headers randomly stop stretching. see attached screen shot, its not a big deal because no body really browses at that size but i thought i may as well point it out.

    I think this might have been pointed out before...but as you said it's really odd to browse at that width...on my 1680x1050 20" I never have the window at more than maybe 1200 wide. Maybe for someone on a 30" it might be more noticeable?

    I browse at that width on the 24" Dell but it really doesn't bother me. It happens in Safari and Internet Explorer as far as I've noticed.

    Thanks for pointing this out. It's not a critical problem, of course, but some of us are perfectionists so we'd like to see it fixed.

    I've seen lots of websites designed for only a single optimal width. The trends for business sites seem to be in that direction, and I've been dragging my feet because I prefer sites that scale beautifully to any width.

    Even sites that stretch often have maximum "good" sizes, but perhaps we can avoid being one of them.

    I stretched my window on my 20" iMac (1680x1050) and I could see it in Safari for about 2 inches.

    A number of people have contributed to the implementation, but it's up to arn whether or not to make proposed changes.
