Default Exapanded theme please!

I have a dual display and about 200% of my browser real estate is being wasted on background. Even on just one window about 40% is being wasted and causing unsightly wrapping. How about a theme that expands to 100% of the page width.

Are you unable to just resize your window?

I have the same problem. I upgraded to a 1280x1024 monitor, but I now have about 3-1/2" of empty space on both sides of the page.

What a ridiculous question of course I can but does that solve my problem? No, it just inefficiently hides it.

Code:
<table width="758" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="center">
Changed to
Code:
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="center">
Its not like I'm making an unreasonably difficult request.

I have found a workaround to the small themes this site uses.

In firefox
View -> Page Style -> No page style

It makes the site ugly as sin but at least its not squishing all the text into less than half my monitor's capabilities.
