- Common screen resolution? 14 answers
While working on a website, I asked a friend what his monitor size was. He said his monitor was 32" but added that the size of the screen does not matter in web design, It's the resolution and that "It's fairly safe to say now that everything ought to look good from 1080p down to mobile browsers". I've been using tools like http://quirktools.com/screenfly which has lists of monitor sizes along with resolutions. The monitor drop down with the list of monitor sizes confused me a little because I thought for example where you can select 10" 1024 X 600, I thought the 10" meant that 1024 X 600 was typical of 10" monitors so asking my friend what monitor size he had would give me a good idea of what his viewing experience might be like thinking there are typical resolutions for screen sizes. Was I wrong? Also, how would you design to also accommodate such large screens?
