Automatically Adjust Web Page Resolution on a Wide Screen Monitor

If you own wide screen monitor browsing web pages may be a little bit annoying now that many websites are in different sizes, many web pages now come in long and narrow configuration to fit majority of screen resolutions, at many times leaving centimeters of dead space along the sides. Which will eventually kill your browser experience and soon will become a nuisance to your eyes when reading. Sure there is the zoom in and zoom out option, but really how many times will you be bothered to keep doing it everyday..?!? Some websites have ridiculous bright/dark backgrounds and very small font.. and at times raising your pressures levels just trying to figure out whats written..!!

But then again if your a Firefox user there is simple solution to all these problems.. a simple add-on. It automatically adjusts the screen resolution of the web page so that it fits in to your wide screen comfortably and offers manual selection of text format and background of web sites to make your browsing more comfortable. The add-on is called NoSquint. NoSquint allows you customize text, zoom and background settings the way you want it per site. This is certainly one add-on that will be worth trying out if you are wide screen owner.

NoSquint can:

* Override the default text-only and full-page (both text and images) zoom levels for all websites
* Enforce your own foreground and background colors
* Remember your zoom levels and color settings per site, automatically applying them when you return.
* Disagree with what NoSquint calls a site? A powerful exceptions mechanism lets you split up or group together sites with URL patterns.
