    I noticed that a few websites, namely CSS-TRICKS and Smashing Magazine, have designed their site so that it is completely viewable in 1024×768 without scrolling, however there is a horizontal-scroll and you can actually scroll about 30px to the right. Why is it done this way? (I hadn’t noticed this until just now)

    My question is: Is this good practice?

    The majority of sites today are built for 1024px monitors, this is considered good practice.

    This will change in the coming year, or maybe 2011 to the next one up (1280?).

    The iPad is 1024 wide, so I think we’ll be seeing most sites sticking with that for a while. I quite like it…

    Regarding the horizontal scroll… that’s just a mistake that I need to get off my ass and fix.
