Viewable Area Stats

By Deane Barker on October 5, 2005

I’ve compiled the reported stats from our screen resolution vs. viewable area post. Here are the details:

  • People reporting 1024 x 768 resolution (8 people) had an average, actual viewing area of 964 x 566.
  • 1280 x 1024 resolution (33 people) averaged 1120 x 796.
  • 1600 x 1200 resolution (3 people) averaged 1411 x 968.

On average, users lost 11% of their screen width and 23% of their screen height to browser controls. So if you’re designing for 1024 x 768, actually design for about 900 pixels wide.
