SiteAdvisor 126.96.36.19961 Internet Explorer 7 WinXP SP3
I get a horizontal scroll bar on some sites, like Google search results pages and this forum. This forum is way bad - two screens wide! My view is TWO screens wide with a scroll bar @ bottom. I confirmed that it is SiteAdvisor by disabling everything except SA, then finally disabling SA. After killing SA everything is fine.
Something is wrong with your browser then as this is how it has always looked to me, unless someone posts a huge image as part of their post. I've rediced the one below in size anyway from my native 1680 X 1050
Ok, I thought that standard screen resolution was still 1024 X 768. But time moves fast on the net. I've also noticed that portable pc's tend to have wider width but smaller height compared to stationary screens.
I know that "Browsers adapt width to fit a window size." But websites don't necessarily do the same, if their code is faulty or inflexible...
