I think this is the reason, scroll to the bottom of the main page:
This site optimised for 640x480 using ALynx, a ASCII-Web-Browser for Amiga,
I gave the developer of a web-based tool in my office a really hard time when he optimized his pages for 4x3 screens. His response was that it needed to be usable by all employees. 95% of the office already had widescreens by then and even all of those were replaced three years ago. Only now are they redeveloping the front end for 16x9. Never build anything without the ability to adopt the latest technology. My current display is 5120x2880.
Designing a web site for a specific screen aspect ratio is dumb. Browser windows come in all shapes and sizes.
Do you run your browser full screen on a 5120x2880 display?
I pretty much never browse full screen on a laptop or desktop, only on mobile devices. On my laptop, my browser window is usually close to square. On my desktop, it is often taller than it is wide. iPads are 4:3. Most phones are 16:9, but people browse in portrait orientation more often than landscape.
But it also means that if it ran on a 640x480 screen using ALynx, it will surely run on a 5120x2880 screen.
Right now, we're working on getting it equally as splendid on your big screen and an iPhone.
