With 39% of people still using 800x600 or lower that doesn't seem too clever an idea ...

My strong feeling is that the new design is very difficult to scan and read, because it's just too wide. I've read a reasonable number of online murmurings that tend to support that view, but I'm having problems finding any definitive research... Can someone point me in the direction of good research and information? Also, if any of you have strong views one way or the other I'd be interested in hearing them.
