Things at the edge of the screen is easier and faster to reach than
things not at the edge of the screen [1]. When the maximized Opera
window has a left border, the expander in Opera is not at det edge of
the screen.

I think it would be a good idea to allow a hidden option to disable
(hide) left, right and bottom borders from maximized windows.
It would also often make it easier (and faster) to use scrollbars.
