Windows 7: Snapping - resizing browser

Snapping - resizing browser

Snapping, what a good idea.
What would be better, though, is if I snap my Firefox browser, say, to the left, that it resizes so it fits all the content I can see into the space. Instead of having to scroll left right. It shouldn't be too hard, a great majority of websites are centrally aligned anyway, snapping would just make the central alignment fill the open browser.

Is there a Windows or FF add-on which will sort this out? Or is there a provision for this somewhere that I haven't yet found!?

It does the same in IE... so I resize the browser to fit all content L 2 R and then snap to the top... works like a champ and that browser window takes just a little more than half my widescreen!
