In Safari 5 for Lion, you could drag the edges of a full screen window in to ad a margin on the side. This feature was helpful for basic websites that wrapped text using the window edge as a text border, as you could condense the text into the middle of the page. Is there any way to resurrect this feature in Safari 6 for Mountain Lion, or has it been completely dropped?

    I'm already seriously missing this, especially on sites like Wikipedia, to name one, and many others that are largely text based with poor formating.

    I also miss this feature.  It was really nice when you wanted to hid out distracting adds on the edge of the web page.  I didn't need to use it all the time, but it was still nice to have some freedom and adjustability in the webbrowser.  Now I have to use the Reader function if I want to be able to focus on the text, but for some reason Reader doesn't work for every website, so ya, still missing the adjustable margins.
