They've got this thing called a "taskbar" now, let's you keep all your
programs maximized in your desktops "viewport" (as you so cutely put
it...children like you can be so darling with your niave little
appellations) while still being able to directly switch between and
see all the programs you have running...it's gonna be BIG! *nods*

I'm sure from your retarded perspective you often have trouble
distinguishing words from shit.

TASKBAR IS TEH HARD YO!!1!
Free cl00, Dipshit, if you just enlarged the text and NOT the rest of
the content the site is going to look all fucked up with the text
line-wrapped and broken apart in strange ways that are pretty much
gonna make it near impossible to read, whether you've got yer browser
window maxed or not.
But hey, maybe in another decade or so you can manage to catch up with
the rest of us and figure out what that REALLY complicated "taskbar"

There are two primary terms, "liquid" and "true/perfect liquid". The
former is in relation to liquid space stretched text, where as the
later is used to describe sites in which ALL elements are liquid
sizable depending on the display resolution and/or browser window
