CNN.com dis this recently as well. Made me feel better about switching my homepage to a 950px width design. But I did leave my inner pages at 750px as there are still too many 800x600 users out there.

Super! Thanks for the post. Now I have another big site to reference when I discuss design with my clients.

Im glad 800 x 600 is on the way out because it feels so bulky. Even so a lot of people are using 800 x 600 and you know you cant please everyone but you still have to try :)

This past Friday I meet with a client for a site redesign. We were looking at websites on her 17 inch flat screen. Her monitor was set at 800x600. I'm guessing that she was at least +55 year of age... so it's a saft bet that men and women 5) and older comprise a large segment of users who view at 800 x 600 because of eye strain. I guess it comes down to designing for the client in this case.

Rats...

Why not design the page so it scales to most resolutions well? I've got a monitor for my file server/secondary computer that's capable of only 640x480.

I have Netscape set up so it only shows what a 640x480 screen would show and try to check my site design over on it before I release it to the real world.
