website design question

what screen resolution do people generally think is the best suited for potential site visitors? 800x600 seems way too small and archaic, but it used to be standard. by now i've got to figure that most people have at least stepped up to 1024 if not larger screens.

is that true?

just curious what resolutions people have designed their websites to.

I tracking statistics on my websites. Here are the system resolutions for the past 1100 hits (about 60 different visitors). I'm trying to design for 1024x768, but I'm seeing more and more 1280x1024 (typically 17" and 19" LCDs). I'll probably start using that as a target next year.

I haven't been tracking stats on my website, I've just been using resources online with surfer stats. In general, I've found that 800x600 is still about 25% of total visitors. My site is written for 800x600 and I probably won't change that for another 1-2 years.

People can cope with a smaller window on a larger screen, but a large window on a small screen irritates the hell out of visitors.

While 1024 is the latest standard, most pro's still develop for 800 wide max. The smart choice is designing an expandable layout that will look pleasing in both situations. I develop sites based on the 800 max at this time. I wouldn't want to lose those 62 potential customers because they don't like to scroll. ;)

Most domain hosts already have it as part of the package.

I have made my epsphoto.co.uk website at 800x600 but if your using 1024 it will just have nice red borders !

I also now work for 1024 as standard, I think thats where the world is moving.

Remember it's 750-780 wide if you include browser furniture and any borders you design ;)

Most of the sites I design are in the 800x600 bracket, designing a fluid site is preferable but some site designs can't be implemented that way.

1024x768 is the market standard atm - all sites i design are 955px wide max - some sites are taller than others - but i try and set a site to a fixed size of 955x600

with most new systems now coming with 17-19" TFT's the standard is creaping to 1280x1024 so in a year or so i'll be changing my size to fit within that..

I design my sites for 800px wide. I'm assuming others are like me and don't browse with their browser maximized. Just because my screen is 1680px wide, doesn't mean I want my browser taking all 1680px up ;)

Yea, 780px is max to allow the scroll bar on a maximized 800 screen. ;)

I usually max my tables at 760px.
