If you mean to figure out the relative widths and use a proportional 
amount for each column on the existing display, that will end up 
leaving some VERY narrow columns to make it even less readable than it 
is now.

Even now, links follows the HTML I would say "too closely" and you end up 
with columns of text that are very narrow (often when a page has a column
of links then a column of a news story).  I wish it would use more horizontal
space, as long as it didn't use more than the width of the screen for each
