Examples:


EDIT / UPDATE - This post is now quite old and it seems both of these websites have since been updated, including having their content centred.


This seems to happen more on sites with a lot of traffic.

Is there any reason that they are sitting over to the left of the browser window? It's not like its a big deal to put the site in an HTML wrapper and set the margin:auto. There must be a conscious decision to it. What were they thinking?

Whats the thinking behind Why left aligning-align a whole website?

Looking around the web ive, I've noticed quite a few sites (mainly sites that havnthaven't had a major facelift for a couple of years) that have the entire site sitting to the left of the page, for example - http://www.jenningsbet.com/ and the newly face lifted http://betfair.com (im aware these are both betting sites, but i dont think that has anything to do with it). Although i have noticed this happens

Examples:

This seems to happen more on much larger sites with allot going on, on them a lot of traffic.

Is there any reason that they are sitting over to the left of the browser window, its? It's not like its a big deal to put the site in an htmlHTML wrapper and set the margin:auto; so i thought theremargin:auto. There must be a concusiousconscious decision behind why its like this, i just could workto it out . What were they thinking?
