Question: With Firefox and soon IE8 equipped with ZOOM features, is there a need to change previous pages? And, second, should an upsize in thumbnails be considered (200x200, for example)?
Sites I'm doing now will safely display within a 1024 wide resolution which if I remember correctly it is the most popular at the moment but I think that will be short lived with all the wide screen monitors coming on the market.
Even with broadband more common, at what point does a 100 image thumbnail page not work?
And how many older folks ZOOM or use LARGE FONTS etc.? Me being one of the older folks.
Do we code for kids with sharp eyesight? Can we depend on the mom and pop (that's most of us) being smart enough to figure out how to use screen zoom if they are not using FF?
In a wide screen world, which is becoming more prevalent, what size
THUMBNAIL makes sense without slowing page, etc.
When I started webmastering 640 was the norm. And take it back a year or so earlier and all my graphics from 1983 to 1994 were ansi (BBS). :)
BTW the zoom feature is already implemented in IE7.
And don't forget that large monitors don't mean folks are viewing your site full screen.
If I visited your site you might look in your stats and see that someone had a 1600x1200 monitor. But would you know that my browser window was only 800x600?
I'll resize up since these are art prints we'd like to sell. Those who use less than full screen can adapt... by scrolling to the right.
