Two Resizing Features I’d Like to See

I have are two features I’d like to see done in a Firefox extension. The goal of each of them is to eliminate horizontal scrolling.


Provide a button, labelled “shrink-wrap”, that will resize the browser window so it’s just big enough to display the page with no horizontal scrollbars. Probably should have a reasonable minimum size (such as 640px) and maximum size (the width of the screen).

Fit Width

This is the same feature, but in the other direction. Rather than resizing the window to fit the content, resize the content to fit the window!

Probably works best when “Zoom Text Only” is unchecked.

I bet this sort of thing already exists in mobile phone browsers, but I want it on my desktop.
