Website pages are always much smaller that browser window.
I'm on a Mac. Website pages are small, in the middle of the browser window. I can increase them by hitting Command + several times, but it's a nuisance to have to do that every time I go to a new page.

What are your screen dimensions?
You can use an extension to set a default font size and page zoom on web pages.

I don't know what you mean by an extension, but I'll take a look at it.
I have a 27 inch screen, but that doesn't enter into it, as I very seldom expand my browser windows to fill the screen. I just have them scattered about on the desktop, like papers on a desk.
But when I go to a new website the site itself is just a narrow strip down the center of my browser window. I have to hit Command + several times to get it to fill the window. There must be some kind of setting I'm missing.
