Sorry for the late reply, been away out of internet range :)

You can't please everyone and I'm not that bothered really.
My main monitor is  HD ultra wide which comes in at 3440 x 1440 so if you can make it work with that as a separate setting ... then wooHoo :)

Yeah and I know people who already use 8k displays cause of their gaming rigs, so only a matter of time before that spills over to peoples workspaces, which would make viewing the forum even harder with it stretching to compensate.

I honestly think Desktop browsers like Mobile, should start incorporating their own resolutions for the viewport. On mobile, for example, my phone is the same resolution as your desktop, but the browser doesn't waste computation on that, and displays the browser with a maximum width of 480px/vw (in portrait).

Honestly, the previous narrow design scared me a little, I did not understand what was happening. And this design, especially white ... I'm just in love.

UPD: Ups, Google Translate (an extension for Google Chrome) stopped working here, which shows a quick translation near to the selected piece of text. Maybe this is due to the appeared citation functionality.

Well that's not good. I wonder what would break it. The content that isn't static is what you edit or post with quick reply. Everything else is and should be available to DOM parsers.

I don't know what "static content" is. But when you select a piece of text in a post, the "Quote selected text" button appears. I think it intercepts the initiative and does not allow Google translate to do its job. But this is just my guess.

It has to be something with their DOM parser inspecting the page. I tried the Google Translator for Firefox (a plugin) and it was able to translate all the topics I visited to Spanish, French, and Swedish. Perhaps there is another tool you can use?

I don't know if you are familiar with UserScripts for browsers, but if all else fails I could create one that like, I don't know, adds a button to the top of the page with a dropdown of languages that you can select to change the page language. Might be helpful for others.

This may not solve your problem, @Denis Sirenko , but I implemented the full Google Translate API and a selector (which will auto-translate): https://planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,26862.0.html
