Just like how we used to be able to select "compact."

I understand that more and more people are using vertically oriented devices like phones and tablets, but there is still a huge market share of users on desktop devices, and with the market saturated by widescreen displays, taking up vertical space while having 4 inches of white space on the left and right side of practically every website makes no sense.

I switch between Firefox and Opera because I really enjoy the sidebar that Opera has as it makes much more efficient use of screen real estate.

Making moves

Currently the Lepton CSS theme support compact view. By the way, I don't recommend using Opera because it was being bought by a Chinese company which had terrible privacy reputation and even its founder left this company. I recommend using vivaldi instead.

I would like to have a browser that works well for convergence. That means when on a small and low resolution display (IE display on phone) it has the phone style and when the phone is connected to a USB-C dock with a 32" 4K monitor it changes to the tabbed view that works well with such displays.

Currently I have the a Huawei Mate 10 Pro that when connected to a dock or USB-C monitor displays a different interface for the larger screen but Firefox displays the same interface as it does on the phone screen.

I also have a Librem5 which has a window layout that is mostly optimised for a large screen on a laptop or desktop even though it's not a particularly large or high resolution phone.
