    What Screen Resolution do you use?


    Hiya,

    Quick question, what screen resolution do you typically have setup when you are browsing this site?

    If you browse from work and home for example, please think about the one you use the most when voting.

    Ta,

    I use 800x600 because I have a vision issue. I was still using 640x480 until I had several pieces of software that would only run on the higher res.

    As time goes by and the min. res. standards get raised more, I'll have to get some sort of special hardware or software. bigger monitors are nice but only a temporary fix for long term issues. Which is why I alway liked the web sites that had a several resolutions that you could pick on the main page for the entire web site.

    I wish I knew how to do that even for some of my own web sites. I assume it's a real pain in the arse since it's now rare that I ever see a web site that gives a choice. I don't have any url's bookmarked that are like that, so I have no example.

    1600x1200 because I'm on a 19" monitor, and I like lots of landscape.

    1280 x 1024 for most of my computers. Though I am trying to get better monitors for 1600 x 1200
