Most monitors I use these days are 1080p or atleast 900 anyway, yet almost every web site I go to including Stackoverflow (where I get most of my tips and tricks) force the content to the middle with big wide margins on the sides. This makes it difficult to read code when you have to keep scrolling left and right (made worse in OSX where there isn't a scroll bar as such!).
Is this some UX conspiracy or rampant design consideration that has inflicted itself upon us developers? :) And what would be the most appropriate stackexchange site to raise this on in regards to StackOverflow - Meta?
