When Designing For Browser Size, Remember The Browser Chrome
This came up at work during a conversation about browser sizes and screen resolution: just what is the usable area of real estate in a browser?
That’s changing a bit with the advent of Google Chrome and minimalist browser user interfaces, but here’s a straight forward chart as compiled at My Own Shit (not kidding about the name), with some of my own notes added:
- 640 by 480: 618 by 310 actual, 600 by 300 safe
- 800 by 600: 778 by 430 actual, 770 by 420 safe
- 1024 by 768: 1004 by 598 actual, 950 by 550 safe
- 1280 by 1024: 1259 by 853, 1200 by 840 safe
