This word wrap issue is a Kitkat and later “feature” by Google. Opera and Dolphin Browser have hacked in their own workarounds, but it is definitely a decision made by Google to maximize ad space anywhere in these operating systems. I’ve complained about it endlessly, even to the point where I think it should become an issue for lawyers to battle in the courts using the Americans with Disabilities Act.
