Is there a way to increase web pages resolution?

  garrema 20:31 29 Jul 2005

I like to run my screen at 1280x1024 which is the native resolution. However, most webpages are it seems fixed at something like 800x600 and so with my monitor set at higher res I end up with a half screen full of web page.

Am I missing anything daft e.g. browser options or elsewhere in XP (Home) which would enable higher res web pages?

The SHOULD center in the page.

I am running the same screen res, but find that almost every website I go to intents to resize itself.

It all depends on the web page itself - some have a fixed size - some can resize themselves to suit the display size.

The software used in the design, and the way the web designer specifies the page design will control it - not you or your system.

"The SHOULD center in the page."

No - it depends on the way the page is written, as above.

Its what I thought may be the case.
