If you have a big monitor, you can use the space instead to host multiple windows instead of just one but resizing them manually can take a lot of time. Aero Snaps simply automates the process, however, it is only available in Windows 7 and above. SplitView is an application that lets you split your monitor into multiple virtual monitors, enabling you to take full advantage of your widescreen or high resolution monitor.
