Widescreen monitors

I have a 20" widescreen 1600 x 1200 (viewable area across the screen 16.2") when viewing this site I finish up with a 3.5" blue bar on each side which is almost 50% of the viewable area. some other sites that I visit are even worse.

On the bright side an increasing number of widescreen monitors can be used in "Potrait" mode which resolves the problem. As I use my monitor primarily for photoshop work, widescreen is highly desirable, but for normal PC related work probably not worth the bother.
