What is a fixed-width table and its advantages?

Fixed width tables are rendered by the browser based on the widths of the columns in the first row, resulting in a faster display in case of large tables. Use the CSS style table-layout:fixed to specify a
fixed width table.
If the table is not specified to be of fixed width, the browser has to wait till all data is downloaded and
then infer the best width for each of the columns. This process can be very slow for large tables.
