Had anyone noticed that even in this age when 2K and 4K screens are becoming mainstream - the Websites does not give the dynamic views for these screens rendering 50%+ of the screen unused?

Surprisingly the ProMods website is actually responsible in design and does utilizes the whole screen - but many websites does not do it.
Even sites like mva.microsoft.com does not utilize 50% + screen unused for 2K screens.

What do you people think of this funny statistics?

Hey son - can you go to the shop and buy the milk, if they have eggs - buy six.
Sure.
Son goes to the shop and buys six packs of milk and goes back home.
Why did you buy six packs of milk?
Because - they had eggs. And you told me to buy six - if they had eggs.

Hi,

I think that most of the people (not games and so on) are still using Full-HD monitors, so 2K or 4K is right now not mainstream (maybe just for gamers ;) )
Therefore most of the websites are preparing for 2K or 4K.

I would agree that the 2K is not yet a mainstream but it is on the way there... But even then - many websites uses Bootstrap which has no option yet for the 2K screens or even the 1600x900 screens in matter of the fact.
