First viewing on a desktop. Not too bad, I will get used to it.

I've had my first viewing of it on a wide screen. Looks lovely...

One thing I am finding slightly difficult, is to identify topics with new posts since I last read them, or marked as read.

I can see how it's done, but wonder if a subtle background shading behind the icon in the left column, might help.

Love the PM shortcut under user names.

Running 1920x1080 on a 24" monitor via Mozilla and still have dead space of about 1" either side on display ... same as before the last update for me, a small tweak managed to sort out a full width screen. Didn't anyone write the 'fix' down :)

I have a 22" screen and (using Firefox) only have about a 8mm border.

Arora and Chromium exactly the same.

Well, now my borders are 0.5" on each side, and the bed is a nice wide double!

There's still something not quite right .... the FCF banner heading DOES fit my screen yet the forum pages themselves which presumably are an overlay (?) do not. Suppose i can live with it but as someone who flips across many forums which do fit my screen I can't help wonder why this is?
