That's not how Safari works, actually. The standard behavior in most
Mac apps is to maximize to "as big as needed to show the window
contents". So Safari will expand horizontally to the width of the
page (if there is one) and the height of the page (which on most
pages is probably longer than your screen can show, so it goes as
tall as it can). If you go to a page and make Safari nice and skinny
and click the zoom control, it will probably increase its horizontal
size (but not to the entire screen width) as well as its vertical
size. YMMV depending where you visit to test this... but that's how
it works on my site.
