That's not different from reading source in GitHub. On my 4K 27" monitor in 
the office, the code occupies the central third of the screen, horizontally. I 
always have to scroll sideways (and unlike Qt-based applications, Chrome does 
not scroll horizontally when you hold Alt while using the mouse wheel). The 
raw form is useful in those cases.
