Of course you've totally missed the point of browsers and resizable  

I often run a browser with a side bar - that means my viewing area isn't  
to your ratio.  also evenly sized columns look odd - I'm used to one big  
column where the meat is and smaller ones for the side stuff.

or have I missed your point totally?

let the web be the web, I say.
