A few comments on the border radius thread stating that those people still using IE6 should basically upgrade or accept that websites won't work properly for them got me thinking. I personally accept that some elements of my site don't work in IE6. Whilst this is unfortunate, I can't really do much about it without impacting all the other browsers so I have adopted a similar approach. How do people treat those users with small resolution screens though? From what I can tell, the major sites are still designing pages to fit 1024px wide screens; BBC, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Isn't that just dumbing down to the lowest common denominator though? Imagine if web sites were designed to cater for those on the slowest internet connections? We'd still be creating text only pages with no graphics, .js or anything else. It's 2010, surely now we can start designing fixed width sites which are wider than 1024? I'd like to see what percentage there are of screen widths in use as I suspect that 50% of a significant amount of the displays in the world is being unused due to catering for those with very small resolutions.
