    I don't know why, some people like to code their pages in a way that unless we have our resolution set at 1024x768 or higher, we won't be able to read their content.

    Because they're targeting you Mr. Sal - as punishment for derailing the topics of many a thread, including this one.

    So you believe that I derail the topics of many threads?

    And you also believe that I have derailed this thread just because I commented on a real fact about what I saw on the content of the page I tried to read from a link that was posted on this thread?

    Thanks a lot for your observations, MR. Donuts!

    On a site of mine that is very webmaster-oriented (as is SitePoint), I get less than 4% 800x600, with the usual 6% unknown/other. I suspect the feeling is that webmasters/developers are less likely to use low resolution. True to my site; might be true in general.

    All that said, now I should probably go read the article that kicked this thread off.

    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    I guess I don't see the problem either Sal with the low % of people that use under 1024. However I don't think you derailed this thread

    It isn't off topic at all to bring up resolution. Some people still have a good number of visitors who use lesser resolutions (who also have credit cards and spend money), and it's a usability issue.

    There will never be agreement on the issue because people serve different markets and demographics, but it is a valid issue to point out.

    But I guess some people's opinions are less important than other people's opinions, so maybe that just settles that.

    Keep in mind what your resolution stats say is not necessarily what people see. I have 1440 x 900 resolution, but I don't keep my browser windows open any wider than about 800px. I've got lots of other stuff going down on my desktop too, so I need to see my other windows!
