So I've been working on my layout and one thing that's been bugging me is that on my widescreen monitor with my browser window open and maximised, I have a ton of unused space on each side of my forum pages. Currently I have my site set to 980 pixels max width and responsive. It never really occurred to me before why so many sites have this 980 max width but after learning some web stuff over the last month or so I realise it is to support the lowest common denominator with today's most used resolutions. I some times come across sites where no max width has been specified and it's set to full responsive, so the site stretches right out across the screen. For Xenforo's layout it's less than ideal as the forum list tends to float over to the very left and the side bar to the very right with a large blank space in the middle of the main viewing area. I thought about this for a while and then realised a few days ago that its probably my browsing habits that are very different from everyone else's. I tend to use my browser with the window maximised the majority of the time. If I switch this to normal mode then the condensed view squashes the site back into a more readable form. So is everyone else in the world generally using this approach and it's me that been making use of a bad habit all these years?
