WHAT little strip?
do you not know how to set up your browser?
not trying to be mean or anything, but that little strip comment strikes me as someone who doesn't know control/+ expands your screen.

You do realise that the most widely used resolution is/was considered to be 1024x768 don't you? So typically you'd optimise a website using a fixed width of 960 pixels. There's even a design pattern in CSS called 960Grid. Typically you'd break this down to 96x10px or 80x12px columns for your design.

So based on that, a 2560 screen viewing a website designed in this way at the native resolution would result in 800 pixels of white space either side of a centred site.

Using Ctrl+ isn't a magic cure all either. Yes, it'll zoom, but if you want a crisp image you either go native res or double the pixels (either 960px or 1920px). Even then, if a site has been designed around 960px and images are scaled to this, they'll look terrible by simply blowing up the screen.

There are various design mechanisms to get around this (using responsive, fluid designs etc) but no magic cure all.

Thanks for trying to call me out though 'as not knowing how to setup a browser' whilst at the same time showing exactly how ignorant you are to the fundamentals of how websites are designed.

Why not go for a 3440x1440 wide screen instead?
Samsung have recently release a quantum dot 100mhz 21:9 monitor. I'm picking one up next month because ive used the LG 34UC97 for ages and i cant go back to a normal 16:9 monitor now.
The only issue i have was with some ganes not supporting 21:9 properly, but as time has gone on this has become less of an issue really. There is always FlawlessWidescreen you can download that will repair most problems woth a lot of games anyway.

The Samsung i mentioned https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B01L98A326/ref=aw_wl_ov_dp_1_1?colid=23WO1MN96XRN6&coliid=I29VY5NZWC09RK

Oh right 'what strip, do you not know how to setup a browser?' wasn't a thinly veiled attempt to call me out at all, neither is your attitude in the follow up comment.

Please do carry on though - amaze me with your knowledge of Ctrl+ whilst absolutely ignoring the points raised regarding web design metrology. You sure showed me - after all, what would I know, I've only been a full stack developer for 15 years.

You're the perfect illustration of why I haven't logged in here for a couple of years. This place is toxic.

there is one major problem i think you guys are confusing "social media applications" adapted for "web pages"
social media is and was not designed for PC use. the only one that was, was myspace, FB,twitter,kik are all designed for use on tablets, iPhone, iPad,smart phones. From the very beginning of FB they said this and those types of things are the only thing i can not eliminate the strip with out looking like garbage, and again they are not "web pages" they are adapted for browser use.
otherwise 99% of web pages i visit will fit full screen, which i am not sitting as close to the monitor at that point.

Guys please stop derailing this thread. The OP wants answers to his question, not petty squabbles.
Please get this thread back OT.
