With this search: https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=+cannot+be+applied+%22bool+and+bool%22

I get this result: screen cap

There's a ton of white space off to the right side. But the first few links don't actually answer my question — which I would have known if I could see the entire title! But instead it gets trimmed and I have to click through to the page to see the full post title.

It's annoying. Is there any way to fix it?

    In the case of the SO links you can at least hover over the link to get the full URL from which the full title is derived.
