Great job Graham! Thanks!
I feel sorry for all you folk with such high resolution monitors… …nope, wait, no i don’t.
I kid I kid!
Having all that white space doesn’t look great, I agree, but I have to ask what other websites look like at that resolution. Large numbers are going to be designed for 960 to 1200 max, as that was the standard for a long time. And that’s often going to include sidebars.
Designing for over that size becomes a bit of a pain, as the text widths just get ridiculously long. So even sites that design for super wide resolutions often just add more sidebars.
I’d be genuinely interested in how many sites seem to deal with high resolutions properly, vs being narrow / overlong text lines.
Since none of the PCs I use has a screen at even close to that resolution, it’s a bit hard for me to know how many sites work well on it. I’d have thought that by that resolution you’d want to have the browser at half the screen width and have something else in the other half, wouldn’t you?
Or do an iPad and size everything up to x2 resolution so that the text is reasonable.
That said, their media queries do go up to 1550px, but the css is compressed so it’s a bit hard to parse.
Have you tried just pressing CTRL+?
