I cannot believe we are having hard times convincing clients at work to adapt to our design standard of 1024 x 768 screen resolution. I just don’t know what source of information they depend on to opt for 800 x 600 and insist on it!
The world is moving towards 1280 while we still try to sell the 1024 x 768 here, a huge shame really.
We show them stats, we show them analytics, all in vain.
Even at the simplest of examples, Mazenville, take a look at this excerpt from Google Analytics:
800 x 600 = 1.72%!
I have much more visitors (triple) with resolutions of 1620 x 1050.
So is it really hard to figure out which audience to optimize to? Or is there a hidden promise for those who go for 800 x 600 which I don’t know about?
What’s the point of hiring the experts if you’re not going to listen to what they say?
I will close with that.
