Updated Updated Information :-)
Due to the rise of cell phones and tablets for viewing web pages, the
developer tools of modern browsers now have functions to view a page at
different screen resolutions built-in. For Firefox (still my favorite) you press
Ctrl + Shift + M to enable the
Responsive Design View function.
PS - I promise, someday I'll make this site mobile small screen friendly.
now use a better method for checking out how pages look on different size
screens. I have bookmarks that automatically resize the browser window. Simply
create the link (favorite/bookmark) in your toolbar folder with the URL/Location
Y the screen height minus 30 (the task bar height). Here's the Locations/URLs
from the picture.
Here are some images to use for checking window widths.
Adjust your browser window size so that the image fills the window. This
gives a good feel for how much of a web page lower resolution PC users will see.
These pictures try to take into account the screen space lost to the
Windows9X/NT/2000 taskbar and Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator toolbars
The background is a 50x50 grid with a line width of 1 pixel.
