Web Designers and the folks who hire or supervise them,
often forget that their intended audience won't have broadband
and won't have a workstation that's as "cool" as theirs is. Human
nature is like that and it has very little to do with I.Q.
The fat part of the web-surfer bell curve is still running
at 800x600, trending towards 1024x768. For public sites,
I like to design for 800x600 screens.
There are millions of Web TV's
out there too. WebTV's display even less than the original
640x480 of the IBM-PC-XT. Recently we've had to serve folks
who surf the web on PDA's or cellphones too.
and Cellphones are very special design needs, and your
budget committee needs to evaluate the cost
of serving that need, vs the share of your
audience that is likely to seek it.
I built these grids to help remind myself that not
everyone on the net has a 4800 x 1200 pixel workstation.
I also recommend testing each new website design
with a slow modem before taking it live to see
what people who do not have broadband see.
