•Click on the tab labeled "View" on the Firefox toolbar.

•2
Scroll down and select "Full Screen" to enter full-screen mode. Scroll your mouse pointer over the top portion of the screen to display your address bar.

•3
Click the "Restore" (square icon) button next to "Close" (X) at the upper-right side of your browser window. This returns Firefox to standard mode

'Ctrl+' will zoom in re the current screen view and 'Ctrl-' zooms out in Firefox :)

Dcx, what do you mean wasted space down the side? I'm on a 24" monitor and the HUKD site is fine - there is no wasted space, its just got a grey background.

Use IE :D

or hit F11 which is the quicker way of doing it than I said. I thought f11 was only a shortcut in IE, learn summit new everyday,

Exactly... Wasted Space...

What you are seeing is negative space - and it serves a strong purpose. Do you expect the website to be 100% fluid? That would look awful and cluttered - negative space in design is very important.

Funnily enough, this same issue was brought up on boagworld yesterday if you fancy a read: http://boagworld.com/design/why-whitespace-matters/

I would hate having a 100 percent fluid site for hukd, the extra real estate would not help imo and to me would look awful. I guess like most things its all subjective though :)
