    Website width

      What is the average width designers are using for websites nowdays.


      I am designing a new website which is centered and 980 pixels wide. I will also be having a drop shadow left and right so should I include it within the 980px?

          Devices come big and small these days.   Most forward thinking developers are already using multiple style sheets & media queries to target various device widths. 

          • 1600px wide for ultra wide displays
          • 1000px - 1200px wide for average laptops/desktops. 
          • 700px wide for tablets.
          • 480px wide for landscape smartphones.
          • 300px wide for portrait smartphones.


          It's not so simple anymore.
