I do the same thing -- my windows on my 1024x 768 laptop are  
frequently smaller, to make it easier to see what all is up.

This is aided by the fact that a page's main content is generally  
narrower than the page -- I don't mind so much scrolling over to see  
the sidebar, and I don't miss the ads at all. ;)

(Side note:  my mouse is set up so that if I click both buttons at  
once, it switches the axis of the scroll wheel, which makes side- 
scrolling a lot easier)
