PrusaPrinters - Wide display option? Browsing and using all screen space vs white space on sides?

I was curious if there's any thoughts on adding a wide display option to use your entire screen when browsing prusaprinters.org?  It would be nice, especially when browsing 3d models on desktop.

It would cause eye strain. It's a bad idea to have content full screen on a big screen. Too much effort for your eyes going fast from left to right, right to left.

I work with a iMac 5K (27" screen) and my browser window is only half of the screen wide. Going full screen is a pain, except for specific purpose: CAD, movie, spreadsheets...

My browser window fills also only half my screen (32"), but I would still like to use all of that real estate...

Just open two browser windows, then you could fill your screen and browse twice as fast 😜 

 

Sorry, couldn't help myself 🤣

@adesir Thingiverse displays 5 columns and Prusa only 3 and I'm still feeling fine

@swiss_cheese Let's make it dual screen and double that again 😉

Uh... wouldn't you get eyestrain when you're doing CAD or spreadsheets in full screen then?  Shouldn't you just get a smaller monitor?

I have four 24"+ monitors for work and use every pixel I can.  The idea of not using a full screen due to eye strain is lost on me.

I don't know if your kidding, but I use a quad monitor setup, two wide and stacked 2 tall, on Ergotron adjustable arms. 4X 23"

 

your preaching to the choir, and apparently in good company. 😉
