I don't understand why I'm being forced to scroll when there's all this blank space to the sides.
Even on my laptop, this looks strange to me, a huge wide expanse of nothing, and this little strip of text down the middle of the page.
What's the reasoning behind this?
Arguably, though, a website that’s surrendered to the strip should make some compromise between line length readability and reducing scrolling.
Lack of multi-column text support on the Web. Optimal readability is around 64 characters per line - more than that hurts quite a bit, especially for long-form text where accurate scanning is more important.
Even IE10, mobile safari, and the gingerbread android browser support it
