How about moving the pane to the right, to take full height? Good for wide screen displays. In the current GUI I see the extremely wide combo boxes, so wide for no reason.

But I still wanted the patch out for comments. It's not polished yet: the html could be better styled, the feed urls taken from a config file and the whole pane could be made optional.
