For a while now, there has been a debate raging between web developers on whether or not to still support the 800×600 monitor resolution. As of today, my site still supports 800×600, evan though only about 10% of my visitors have their monitors set to that resolution. Globally, I’ve heard that 800×600 is still used by about 25% of internet users.
I was browsing the Apple site today, and realized they took the plunge at some point. At one time all of the Apple site was compliant with an 800 pixel wide monitor. Some portions of the site still are, but most of the pages now require at least 1024×768 (the most common resolution).

The great majority of users outside US still use 800×600. That’s sad. We always have to develop website thinking about 800×600 users.
I usually support 800×600 just because I’m not sharing high-res images with the world. Eventually, I’ll be upping my sites to 1024×768, but why bother unless the site looks cluttered at 800×600?
Webmotiva: Where on earth do you have it from that non-US users don’t have 1024×768?!
About 70% of my visitors are non-US; and only 2% of my users are 800×600-users…
How can ANYONE get by with either 800×600 OR 1024×768. If I’m on a computer using that I get so frustrated I have to leave. It’s like the dial-up of monitors.
