        My preference is to configure Firefox (which serves as my
        secondary browser) to use something close to 80 columns for the
        HTML documents, either.  Whenever feasible, I use CSS overrides
        (via Stylish) to move the sidebars and the likes off to the
        bottom of the page, or to remove them altogether.

        On the EWW side, there’s that new eww-readable feature which I’m
        yet to try out.

        On the document side, the proper markup has the payload content
        /not/ wrapped in any tables or frames, and has the navigation
        going after it, not before.  That’s, e. g., how modern MediaWiki
        software behaves by default, and so that’s how Wikipedia (and
        the rest of WMF wikis) show up – giving an entirely reasonable
        Web reading experience with EWW, Lynx, etc.
