Hadn't thought of that so I'll bear it in mind. However, it may still depend on the resolution of the laptop in question (eg I have a 'retina' MacBook which has more horizontal space than my old laptop).

Yes, that's the plan. I did mention it but probably wasn't clear enough.

> Also, it's more a comment for opam, but it would be nice if the documentation system could do the same locally with the same experience but showing you only the documentation of your installed packages (with a landing page that lists the packages and their respective modules for direct access).

Yes, this is also something we want :)  It's not just an opam thing as it involves Leo's upcoming work on documentation, as well as using packages like cow, opam2web, weberizer etc. Doing this locally, would enable the creation of properly cross-referenced docs for a particular user's environment. 

Best wishes,
