Should I Care About Making My Site Fit on 1024×768 Resolution?
Anonymous# January 27, 2013 at 11:12 am
My website fits normally on all resolutions above 1024×768. But it does not entirely fit on that resolution or bellow. Should i go the extra mile to make my website compatible on that resolution as well? or does barely anyone have that resolution?# January 27, 2013 at 11:27 am
Sadly enough, way too many use resolutions like 1024×768, and even lower.
Company computers, cellphones, iPad and so on.
If it’s a big problem for you to redesign it, I would go with it as-is and check screen sizes with Google Analytics too see what screen sizes your users uses.
Otherwise, a pair of media-queries should do the job!# January 27, 2013 at 2:12 pm
Are you using fixed widths at different breakpoints?
Realistically the smartest way to build responsively is to use percentage based widths and simply (as @chrisburton said) stick a max-width on for the top end.
That way you’re ensuring it will look tasty on all screen sizes, rather than just suiting particular ones.# January 27, 2013 at 4:45 pm
probably just “zoomed out” (many tablets will do that by default unless you specify how the site should be viewed on mobile devices).
Opera has [a good introduction](http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/an-introduction-to-meta-viewport-and-viewport/) to these concepts.
