Your Screen Resolution

The standard screen resolution used to be 800x600 and most websites where designed to accommodate this. However more and more websites are dumping this and moving to a 1024x768 format or higher.

What resolution are you running?

I have 1280x1024 on my 21" monitor.

I think that is what most people are on now. The issue is that a lot of new sites are being designed for 1024x768 now.

For example, the new Yahoo! homepage is almost 1000 pixels wide so if your running 800x600 you have to scroll to see everything.

I'm running 1024x768 on my 19" flat panel. The websites are setup for 800x600. For my purposes, there's really no need to change it at this point.

Here are the stats from my website as recorded:

61% 1024x768
26.26% 1280x1024
7.07% 1152x864
6.06% 800x600

I average about 350 hits per day so this is a pretty decent cross section. It is June's stat.

1024x768 looks like i'm looking into a magnifying glass and looks like crap on my video card.. 1280x1024 still looks the best

It really depends on what video card you are running to show how good your resolution will look.

They have a free utility that you can monitor or upgrade to full logged statistics. Tells you from where people are coming, what page they enter, what page they exit, what browser, if they are returning or are new visitors (based upon cookie), what keywords they used to find you etc.

Your card, your monitor, and your EYES! Anything smaller than 1024x768 and my wife doens't has trouble reading it without her reading glasses.

Is anyone using a wide screen monitor? I have a wide screen on my laptop and will never go back.

I'm looking to buy a desktop machine later this year and will get a 20"+ wide screen for it no doubt!

It's still in beta right now but if you have a google account (such as gmail) you can go to https://www.google.com/analytics

This is by far the best stats program on the net and totally free unless your getting millions of visits a day (non of us)
