Use the full width of my screen to display more content
Currently, feedly looks great, but it is only using 1239 pixels (horizontally) of my 1920 pixel wide display (1903 when you take away the scroll bar). That's almost 35% completely un-used space that could give me a better experience.
Specifically: I like to see the small excerpt from an item next to the title. I've just moved from Google Reader, where I was able to see much more of these excerpts.
For comparison, here's a one-above-the-other image showing how Google Reader compares to feedly:
Full width display was implemented with v14.0.477 of feedly on desktop (along with a few other features).

I have a 6' hd screen here and frequently images are larger than my screen, please fix that!
A guy had to create a script to make Feedly better. I don't know how this service can be so popular, really.
The full-width works in Titles Only mode, and reduces width in any other mode.
Please enable the Full width in ALL view modes.

In what way is this implemented. Many (most?) of my subscriptions are cutoff and look like crap.
Powered by the feedly cloud
I want to like feedly but it always seems to be falling short. Maybe this just isn't a product that can be done well.

if you are not happy with the way this was "completed" upvote this to bring it up on their radar:
The script I created uses full window width for every view, also fixes a lot of stuff.
Custom Feedly Styles: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/171749
There are a lot of style changes also, "h" hotkey for opening feed in background tab.
You'll need Greasemonkey or any GM-like plugin (Tampermonkey, Scriptish, Opera Userscripts)...
No lags or glitches.

full width display for List view only, is not full suport for wide screens. I read my feeds in expanded mode, and I want Feedly to make use of all my wide screen, and not just a narrow center column. So this is far from completed....

Full width display for cloud feedly full article view is still missing.
This is especially useful for webcomics: images are currently not displayed or resized, and this is ugly.
Manjunath Rao commented
Please implement the same in the new Cloud Feedly

Firstly, as others have commented, this is only partially implemented.
Secondly, for those of us with very large displays (27" here), it's nice to have the titles and snippets go full width, but then have the body text wrap at a reasonable width, a la Google Reader.
Reader wraps text at about (on my screen) 5", which is about right. Longer lines are very uncomfortable to read - that's why no site anywhere uses them.
I realize it shrinks in a bit in title view, but it's not enough.

This was disappointing, and almost insulting. Maybe Feedly is designed for mobile devices, and not desktops? Fortunately there's still a month left to find a new reader before Google's shuts down.
FYI, there's a new suggestion to fix this:
Not fixed. Some feeds actually get cut due the limited horizontal room. E.g. the popular Dinosaurs Comics: The third and sixth panels get cut by the right margin even though there's lots of wasted space at both sides of the feed.
Matt H commented
Not fixed :( Please fix with full article view.
Zach Rhonheimer commented
How is this completed? There are other views this is needed for. Not encouraging when you do half a job and say it's done. Doesn't bode well for the future of Feedly...

Um, not fixed. http://imgur.com/0sC8iRP

As stated by others, this is not fixed. Further, I'd like to add, that it is not even properly fixed in the titles view - while the overview listing of all titles in this view stretches to the full page width, clicking a single title still presents the content in a narrow section in the middle of the screen, cutting off the edges of any large images or other content. Sorry, but until this is fixed your service is unusable for me.
Christoph Weber commented
Ugh, undo it... or give us the option to set a fixed width: I HATE it when the width changes constantly, makes it unnecessarily jumpy and hard to automatically click the buttons...
Andy Skrenes commented
Remi, can you at least comment on why you've determined this to be complete? Read the comments!
Greg Lypowy commented
I voted on this to have it fixed on the iPad, not limited to just the desktiop version.
Sorry, I don't consider this completed.
Jason Johnson commented
What bullshit. This was not "Completed". Every view other than titles still looks like a narrow column in the middle of my screen surrounded by dead, wasted space. Not to mention the Titles implementation wastes my time with a horrible, long, useless animation.
