Make div 100% Width of Browser Window

I'm trying to make one of my containers 100% of the width of the screen.

Here is my SASS

body, html {
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
}

#neo_wrapper {
width: 960px;
height: 1500px;
margin: 0 auto;

#neo_main_container1 { /* Slide1 container */
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
margin: 0 auto;
background: #999999;
z-index: 350;

#neo_scroll_button { /* Div that enables scroll */
position: absolute;
bottom: 35px;
left: 0;
right: 0;
margin: 0 auto;
width: 150px;
height: 15px;
background: #F00;
color: #FFF;
text-align: center;
line-height: 15px;
display: table;

a {
&:link {text-decoration: none; color: #FFF;}
&:visited {text-decoration: none; color: #FFF;}
}
}
}

#neo_main_container2 {
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
margin: 0 auto;
background: #CCC;
z-index: 300;

#neo_img_container {
float: left;
width: 350px;
height: 500px;
margin: 0 auto;
margin-right: 15px;
}

#neo_text_container {
float: left;
width: 50%;
height: 500px;
margin: 0 auto;
}
}
}


And HTML

<body>
<div id="neo_wrapper">
<div id="neo_main_container1"> <!-- Start container1 -->
<div id="neo_scroll_button" onClick="scrollBelow()">
<p>Enter</p>
</div>
</div> <!-- End of container1 -->
<div id="neo_main_container2"> <!-- Start container2 -->
<div id="neo_img_container">
<img src="http://fpoimagery.com/?t=px&w=350&h=250&bg=0ff&fg=000000" />
</div>
<div id="neo_text_container">
<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

</div>
</div> <!-- End container2 -->
</div>




I want #neo_main_container1 to be the full width of the screen. Obviously because it's a child of #neo_wrapper, setting width to 100% will make it 960px. I'm sure how to circumvent this issue, so any help would be appreciated.

Answer

There are new units that you can use:

vw - viewport width

vh - viewport height

#neo_main_container1
{
   width: 100%; //fallback
   width: 100vw;
}

Help / MDN

Opera Mini does not support this, but you can use it in all other modern browsers.
