Fixed width content containers.

Are they coming back, or did they never even sort of leave?

I was reading one site yesterday and the content column was so narrow (less than 400px [this was not on mobile {perhaps they went with a mobile first and only layout}]) that when I cranked the tiny 12px font up to readable size the line length was so short it was only about 20em.

Adding to my list of things I've used Firefox developer tools for--making that bloody column wider.
