If so, you’re not alone. Three of the current top discussions at Cre8asiteforums are on the topic of web page resolution. It’s hard to ignore a vibe that strong. Browser resolution remains a web designer’s dilemma. How do you know what the right choice to make is?

1152×864 On 17″ Monitor Going Too Far?

“I know w3schools.com says a lot of people are on this resolution but it does not specify the correlation to monitor size.”

800×600 Resolution – Do People Still Use This?

“After 20+ years of continuous computer use, the eyes just aren’t as good as they used to be. We design all our clients’ sites to be scalable so that even the 15% or so on 800×600 can view the site the way it was intended.

It will be interesting to see whether over time more or fewer people will migrate to this screen resolution as avid Internet user generations X and Y get older.”

At What Point Can I Design For 1024*768 ?, 15%, 10%, 5%, 1%, 0% of visitors using 800*600

At what point would it be acceptable to save on resources and ignore (well, not optimise for) the 800*600 visitors?”

A Response

Someone from SEMPO read my blog and my concern that perhaps nobody was interested in receiving scholarship money from Cre8asiteforums. Since the members of that forum chose SEMPO to receive some of the money we allocated for education, we weren’t sure what to make of the lack of response.

Perhaps the fault is mine and I shouldn’t have relied on the Internet to make contact. Rather, I should have called. However, I wasn’t sure whom to contact or whom to address. In any case, a volunteer from SEMPO has stepped in to help, and I’m looking forward to the supporting that organization.

Still no word from the usability folks at HFI.

My good friend, Bill Slawski was interviewed. Check out Interviewed at Web Analytics World

The ever humble (this is why I love him) Bill writes:

“Among other topics, we discussed Social Media Optimization and Social Bookmarking, the possible impact of some new patents from Google, the approach competitors to Google might use in taking on the Mountain View search giant, how Microsoft might gain ground on Google by reallocating some of their internal resources, and the little I know about Danny Sullivan’s Search Marketing Expo.”

Okay. There’s a lot to love about Bill. Being humble is just the tip of the iceberg.
