URL is ok. Don't care about that.
And thanks for showing. For me the text size is good to read

The main reason is the same as with a PC...Why would someone like more an 1280 x 1024 resolution on a 19" LCD screen and not an 800 x 600 one?

Because more information fits on-screen. If someone is comfortable with the smaller font size (eg. has good eyes), a higher resolution provides a better experience for those that need this. Who's not used with such small fonts or don't like it or have eye strain, could find better the normal resolution. Is only a matter of taste. Personally I prefer 200-220 setting. Standard 240 looks a little bit lower for me, and everything seem huge...I prefer smaller icons/letters and more "desktop space"
Don't force it...use a bigger hammer!

Do you ever get odd spacing in apps when running a higher DPI? I did during my Hero days and so have avoided this since.... but I did like the higher res look.

He is still WORKING on it. It's not yet fully combilable. IF it will be compilable it most certainly will NOT boot. IF it will boot it WILL have errors... it's still a way to go so everyone do it like me... take a break and enjoy champions league semi finals
