What's not to get? It was triggered by your 2014-10-16 23:07 (UTC-0400) post
with attached screenshots, particularly your last, showing vast empty space.

Mine shows that lots of screen resolution doesn't have to translated into
vast empty space. The higher the display density, the less empty space
results, except where objects sized in px or pt are involved. P text here
instead of 16px is 30px. 30px text is 352% the size of 16px text. That 300px
by 225px image in the middle displays only 1.67" by 1.25" on a 180 DPI
screen. Everything relatively sized on the page is bigger on a high density
screen, except the whitespace, and since the highlight images are sized in
px, they are smaller, a lot smaller, increasing the whitespace in the
container holding them.

On yours, the first paragraph only uses a single line taking up roughly half
the width of the screen. On mine, that same text takes a line and a half.

Mine offers a physical context, a way to see what I see by scaling the image
size to its original physical size. Yours provides no such opportunity, no
way to scale the image in order to see the same perspective presented to your
eyes.
