        Only because I still have a CRT. Once I can afford it I'm going to switch to a Widescreen LCD.

          2560 x 1600, although I normally use it at 1920 x 1200.

          If I am targetting home users, I drop 800x600, unless I know there is a large % of my users still on it.

          B2B sites need to stick with the min of 800x600.

              Desktop: 1280x1024 (LCD)
              Laptop: 1024x768
              Laptop2: 1280x800

              I think for business practices, it's best to develop with 800x600 in mind. However, I tend to focus more on the techy kinda crowd, so I would think a minimum of 1024x768 would fit that group.

              I mean, you could have a website named 2400x1600.com and people would know what crowd you were catering to, but it's not always that easy.

              In this regard, it's also usually a better idea to use percentages rather than fixed values when coming up with the layout for your Web site/application, as having a design for each resolution can eventually become tedious.

                I hear a 960px fixed width is a good choice

                  None of my computers actually support an 800 X 600 resolution. Mainly because they are all widescreen monitors. The lowest resolution in the house is 1440 X 900. I usually have my browser at 1200 width though. Don't really need it wider than that.

                      Here's your answer: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_display.asp

                      800x600 has drastically declined in the last 2 years.
                      1024x768 is dropping and following suit.
                      And higher resolutions are catching up and increasing just as dramatically in the last year(s).

                      It's clear that people are buying new systems, and that new systems come with higher resolution monitors, such as LCD, etc.

                      With affordable monitors like $250 20" and higher from Dell in widescreen at 1680x1050, these numbers will only climb.

                      Personally I try to stay around 760px wide for designs that are fixed, but I am hoping to increase this over 1000px in the next year (for main content).

                          I would ignore W3Schools stats as they are not representative of your average web user, nor is the poll here. We are tech users as are most of the users on W3Schools.

                          The large majority of 800x600 users are companies who fail to upgrade their hardware. I worked at one of the UK's largest energy suppliers last year and 25% of our users were still using 800x600. We had millions of hits per day, so that's a far better metric to have than a community aimed at webmasters and web-developers who are more likely to have the latest hardware

                            I strongly believe (but understand it is the wrong approach) that if we tech people push the envelope that those tech savvy people feel forced to upgrade their 15 year old 12" monitors and below 2 ghz single core computers.

                              I guess at least offering a 800x600-compatble style is a nice gesture as many people want to surf the internet with their cellphone these days...
