With Chrome on Android, it looks very nice except that the code often runs beyond the right edge of the blue background.

With Firefox on Android, the display has improved, but the code is half the height of the prose, which is still hard to read. Changing font size in the browser has no effect. That's unhelpful for those with poor eyesight or large screens, etc. as they are denied control.

With Firefox on Windows, the text runs down the middle and extends about half the window width, and the code overruns the blue background, but it is quite readable. The text size does change as I change the browser font size, unlike on Android.

If only they all worked alike.
