@Mastodon That picture is utterly misleading. The single column interface is still terrible. This is a standard 2560x1440 desktop, and most of the space is still unused.

@Mastodon For comparison, this is how it should look like. I'll be porting the hacks from the multi-column layout over to the single column one, but please fix that stuff.

@Mastodon So, about
.columns-area__panels__main { max-width: 900px } it should be for a 2560 wide browser window, instead of 600px, that looks reasonably ok.

@Mastodon Or let's say 1000 for a

@media (min-width: 2000px) {
.columns-area__panels__main {
max-width: 1000px;
}
}

@Mastodon Oh I think I had a realization: Twitter is fairly narrow and does not cause the same perception.

I think the key there is that twitter has the top bar which fills the screen so it does not feel like it's wasting as much.

Also, tweets are shorter, so the narrow format works for them.

I think something about 900/1000px wide variants I try still looks odd, but it's new, so gotta test more.
