Web Design 2012: Minimal Windows Width of Popular Sites
Perm URL with updates: http://xahlee.org/js/web_design_minimum_width.html
Quite annoyed that Google in past month assume your window size must be quite wide.
Meaning: the page is designed to assume a minimal display width as optimal. For example, if your window is not that wide, a horizontal scrollbar shows up.
Here's some minimal sizes for each site.
- Gmail = 994 (mininum); 1290 (no horizontal scroll bar)
- g+ = 994 (mininum). 1080 for nav bar to float.
- Twitter = 900 (mininum); (990 to show all items in nav bar)
- Google Reader = 952
- Facebook = 1014
- apple.com = 1014
- google.com = 1014
- microsoft.com = 1000
- Yahoo! = 1014
- amazon = 1033
- DISQUS = 1180
Here's sites that used a flow approach.
- Wikipedia = flow
- hootsuite = flow
