    What settings do you use to view with?
    800x600 or 1024x768???

    What is most popular according to your experience. I am trying to find out, I use 800x600 and thats how I make my pages.

    And if you are using the same, how do you get the right effect for all settings?
    Or is this not possible?

    Thanks Mousejockey,
    that was very interesting. I used the anybrowser, and everything came up ok, except for webtv. Which seems like you can't use java with them.

    My stats are a bit diffenent so I thought they would be worth sharing:

    55% - 800x600
    30% - 1024x 768
    21% - IE5
    28% - IE5.5
    35% - IE6
    37% win98
    14% winME
    12% winNT
    11% winXP
    10% win NT

    All of the differnt Netscape browsers accounted for less than 10%.

    Opposite the Slough of Despond
    I get different demographics between Dynamoo (which is an IT site) and the non-techie sites.

    Non-Techie sites (this week):

    2.46% unknown
    1.91% Mac PowerPC
    0.55% Macintosh
    (odd no 2000 or XP users)

    For the techie site it's different..

    46.86% Microsoft Internet Explorer 5x
    42.58% Microsoft Internet Explorer 6x
    4.78% Netscape 4x
    2.59% Netscape 5x

    0.03% X11; I; HP-UX B.10.20 9000/879
    0.03% Windows XP; U

    Odd - I guess the OS must be mis-detected in some way.

    I get about 8%-10% people with Flash, around the same for QuickTime and about 5-7% for Acrobat.

    Ok this is what I found out:

    JavaScript Enabled 8,026 84.58%
    JavaScript Disabled 1,463 15.42%

    1600x1200 16 0.57%
    1280x1024 122 4.32%
    1152x864 78 2.76%
    1024x768 1,036 36.72%
    800x600 1,414 50.12%
    640x480 83 2.94%
    Other Non-Standard Resolutions 72 2.55%

    Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x 1,495 46.94%
    Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x 1,482 46.53%
    Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x 72 2.26%
    Netscape 4.x 61 1.92%
    Netscape 6.x 43 1.35%
    Netscape 5.x 12 0.38%
    Opera 4.x 11 0.35%
    Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 0.19%
    Nutscrape 1 0.03%
    Other Netscape Compatible 1 0.03%
    Opera 6.x 1 0.03%

    I never heard of a broswer called nutscrape.

    And I wanted to ask, what are you using that gives you great detail of info? I have web trends and didnt know they had this,until I was searching some more. I have the free version. My hosting doesn't give these type of stats, they use the webalizer. Its basic, more into pages, kbytes and stuff.

    Now with this information, and this is new to me in some ways, what is the proper way to go about trying your best to make your site for all viewers? How to read this and work with this as a tool?
