MSN, which you use as an example in your screenshot, uses a layout which is 980 pixels wide, placing it in the middle of the browser window. Your screenshot is from a 1920 * 1080 screen. Your screen width 1920 pixels - MSN layout 980 pixels - scroll bar 20 pixels = 920 pixels, leaving 460 pixels empty space on both sides.

Completely normal. If you want a webpage to fill your screen, use CTRL + to zoom in (CTRL - to zoom out). You can also find zoom feature in the View menu.

One thing you could try to take advantage of the extra real estate on MSN is go to "My MSN" and customize it, including the addition of more columns.

This is driving me crazy. Right after I boot my laptop, the screen flashes randomly. Also something is stealing focus from what I am working on to something else. Then it likes to suddenly go to a grey screen. I have to manually reboot. If that is not enough, it like to just reboot.
