This is one of my (many) pet peeves.  Just because I have a high
resolution display doesn't mean that I'm going to devote the entire
screen to the web browser.  IMO, web pages should be designed to work
without horizontal scrolling in a browser window 600-620 pixels wide
(unless there's a really good reason).

People using low-resolution displays will be able to use the page in a
maximized browser, and the rest of us will be able to actually benefit
from our technology investment.
