So, again, why make your browser window *for reading text* that large?
You have control over how large your window size is, and if you have
purposes so different that they demand different widths, then you can
easily make different-width windows.
Everyone has different needs for how large the text should be and how
much of it should go across the window. Every one of us is in a minority
when it comes to those needs; that's exactly what a configuration
setting is good for.
It's madness to expect web designers to hobble the flexibility of a web
page to cater preferentially for one minority over others.
