      You're going to die from your low refresh rate too.

          Res changes are one-time and usually easier to do and leave alone for older and/or less tech savy people to use ... unless you've had a fun time telling your grandma to go to start -> programs -> accessibility -> etc ... or even something as simple as ctrl-mouse wheel ... last time I taught my elder aunt how to use the right-click menu, she enabled active desktop without knowing it

            Setting 'Large Fonts' and zooming the font in IE is a one time thing too. To set Large Fonts:

            Go to Display Properties, click the 'Appearance' tab, and choose the font size (this is in XP. In 98 or 2K or whatever it may be a checkbox or something, or maybe under 'Advanced' in the Display Properties tab). It affects the whole computer, and persists itself like any other Windows setting.

            To do it in IE, just go to View and select the Font Size from the submenu.

                    Yeah, yeah, I know all that about large fonts ... I quoted the "other" accessibility options you were referring to ...

                        True - but what idiot would use their entire screen just to browse the web? Single tasking is what we did in the days of Windows 3.1

                        I have a widescreen display running at 1440x900 but right now I have nine browser windows open, Word, the Terminal/CLI, iTunes, Entourage, and the Calculator - and that's without doing anything so it's usually far far far more. I just measured the size of the Window I'm browsing with right now - 751x579, not even half my screen.

                        Can't say I've ever had to waste my screen by enlarging the browser just to see a website that was so poorly designed it doesn't fit - but if I did I'd simply leave the site instead.

                        What on Earth could possibly need more than 800x600?

                          This idiot.

                          Although the only time I use 800x600 is when I need to make sure my site fits on that res, otherwise I'm on a 1024 x 728(somethign around there) res.
