More and more laptops and even desktop computers have widescreen that famous HiDef letterbox look.

However when viewing webpages and documents, the wide isn’t as desireable as in portrait mode where you can get a better view of a vertical format document.

What makes the widescreen even worse is with the compounding of various toolbars and buttons. ┬áThat visible area is going away fast…

But if you do the following:

  1. get Chrome.
  2. move your toolbar by unlocking it then drag-n-drop to the sides.
  3. get Chome extension to put tabs on side instead of top.
  4. set all the icons to small on toolbar properties by right click
then … voila:
almost 20% more viewable screen space!!!
