I don't know of many people surfing without the browser maximzed.....

Maybe you should be checking to see what resolution the visitors use, that would be more useful information when it comes to laying out a page design.

It would also cover you both ways, if the masses use 800X600 then people at higher resolutions like 1024X768 can see it see everything even if they don't keep it maximized.

Hey Mistress,

Here is a link to the stats of my site .. not as much traffic as this one .. but it shows browser, OS & screen resulution.


WinXP, IE6.0, 1024x768 (32 color) is the most pop with our users.

Thanks for the look at your stats.

Resolution is one thing, but I'm really concerned with whether the browser is maximized or not. Reason being is some of my layouts, but only with some types of content were having float problems when one certain "popular broken" browser was used.

By running this poll, it helped me to see if the majority of the people (that took the poll) use their browser maximized. Now I know if I need to start pulling my hair out now or if I can wait a bit.

Helps me prioritize.

Thanks, Webby!
