Scrollbar for very long lines! If the screen is still not wide enough you'll have an easy way to scroll and read the wide text.
Also, fixed some cases where some elements were cut off in a few Github screens.

Do you find yourself using outdated conventions from the early 60s?

A study conducted at the Wichita State University found that a CPL (Characters Per Line) limit had only small effects on readability, including factors of speed and comprehension. Also, 60% of respondents indicated a preference for either the shortest (35 CPL) or longest (95 CPL) lines used in the study. At the same time, 100% of respondents selected either one of these quantities as being the least desirable. Which means, there's too much of a disagreement for this to be a convention. (Information also from Wikipedia...which, btw, doesn't set a CPL).
