    I haven't seen the numbers lately but I still imagine there's enough of them out there running 800x600 that I always try to keep my width from spilling past 800.

    I think most normal users browsing the web, who have 2 or 3 year old monitors like me have 600x800. If I set it to 1024x768 I find its just too small, and is a pain.

    I still design my webpages to fit within 800x600. As James said there r stilll alot of people with older machines who have a old 15in monitor what can't support anything higher then 800x600

    800x600 is equally popular to 1024x768. I predict in a year though that 1024x768 will be a lot more used than 800x600 because hardly any computers now are being made with it as the default resolution.

    Many people still have their screen with 800x600 (example: JR ) so it's better to make the page fit to 800x600 so more people can view your page without scrolling to the right.

    I use a resolution of 1280x1024 on a 17" TFT.
    According to my site statistics many people are still using 800x600, so of course I optimize my site for 800x600, too.

    Here some statistics of one of my websites from last week:


    Screen Resolutions Week 23 of 2003

    Resolution | Visitors | %


    1. 1024 x 768 pixels 32,786 49.60

    2. 800 x 600 pixels 20,459 30.95

    3. 1280 x 1024 pixels 5,584 8.45

    4. 1152 x 864 pixels 3,634 5.50

    5. Other Resolutions 2,078 3.14

    6. 1600 x 1200 pixels 866 1.31

    7. 640 x 480 pixels 680 1.03

    8. 1024 x 721 pixels 4 0.01

    9. 800 x 553 pixels 4 0.01

    Total 66,095 66,095 100.00%

    66k visitors a week, that's a lively little site you have there. What site is that? Or atleast what is the site's subject, so we can have an idea of what audience these stats represent?

    ugh... i hav 1280x1024 .... but my site optimized for 1024x768 pixels.... 800x600-sux ...
    big resolution - FUTURE .
    The future of graphic design - the big resolution. If the resolution less than 1024 on 768 pix... That I do not think that this person uses the computer as the machine for design. My site is intended for designers. And I make it for them.
    Design will save da world!

    PS. You aspire in the future? If is not present, make sites for small resolutions.
