Eye Brow Windows

Why did Boeing exclude eye brow windows to aircraft models later than the 737? (747-777)

All I know is that on the 757, the blunter nose resulted from fitting the 767 cockpit into a narrowbody.

I think the reason is that they inceased the size of the windows on their subsequent designs. Just compare the glass area on a 757 with a 737. Having the eyebrow windows just became redunant and another peice of equiptment to maintain, with the extra visability from the bigger windows

This isn't anything offical. I just base this on the size of the windows.
