I'm on an older slot-loading iMac, still using OS9.2.2. Whenever I browse, I'm constantly having to scroll right and left to view the full contents of whatever page I'm on.

Is there any way to remedy this so that I can view the entire page without have to scroll side-to-side?

Go to the monitors control panel and change your resolution to 800x600 or 1024x768. Sounds like you're running 640x480.

Agreed. The video card is capable of running an external monitor at 1280x1024, too bad the monitor can't handle it. :/

... and you can also try iCab Kiosk mode, so the browser gets the full screen.
