16:9 Screens. Why the hate?

15

I like 16:9 screens. There, I said it. It feels like an increasingly unpopular position, though. I like them, because I can window what I’m working with, and have a chat window, music controls, or other item off to the side. I feel like with a 4:3 or 16:10 screen I can only monotask, there’s only one thing on the screen I can realistically work with, and so I’m continually going back and forth between apps. I can just glance over on a slightly wider screen without having to do so.

But it feels like I’m going against popular opinion here. Am I just wrong? Or are there other 16:9 aspect ratio lovers out there being drowned out by popular opinion?
