Making of a Platform and Browser Compatible Website Design

Making of a Platform and Browser Compatible Website Design

What is the use of the website that is neither compatible with the browser nor with the platform? ZERO! That is what you would say when the information in the website is not seen at all. The issue of compatibility prevails just because the configuration of the web designer computer is absolutely different from the configuration of the visitors computer.

Some of the key issues pertaining to compatibility are as follows.

Resolution of the Screen:
The types of screen resolutions that are usually used for website design are 800×600, 1024×768, and 640×480. Earlier websites with screen resolution 800×600 accounted for more than half of the total websites followed by the websites with screen resolution 1024×768 with nearly one third of the total website. Now most of the websites are either with screen resolution 800×600 or 1024×768. The major drawback of screen resolution 1024×768 is that most the visitors have to scroll the screen horizontally and this is at time uncomfortable and irritating for the visitor especially if the scroll bar is not provided.

Facilitating the visitor with a comfortable website is the onus of the website designer and this can be accomplished by either fluid design or a design with screen resolution that is either 800×600 or 640×480. The best characteristic of fluid design is that the webpage gets automatically adjusted to the screen resolution of the visitors monitor. It is always better to opt for a screen resolution less than 800×600. If the situations compel to have a canvas greater than 800×600 screens resolution it would be better to post some advertisements on the right hand side so that the content is moved a bit towards the left. The advertisements become optional but at the same time the content can be read without scrolling left or right. The web page can usually be made to fit into different screen resolutions through the alternative of adjusting the relative width like 90%, 80% and 100%

Colors of Color:
What may look beautiful in the monitor of the webpage designer may look ugly in the visitors monitor. This is usually because of the color system used for web design and the color palette on the computer of the visitor. The color codes can give different systems. If the web designer has 256 color setting system and the visitor has 24-bit color system the required effect of the color will not be there. This is because of the difference in the number of colors on the color palette of the web designer and the visitor.

The use of color combinations that are in the multiples of hexadecimal is slowly reducing because this technique is going old. A 16 bit color palette is neither equal to nor a substitute for 24 bit palette.

The availability of Java Script and frames need to be also considered for making the website compatible with browser and platform technology. For the most compatible website design a professional and reliable expert web designer should be contacted.
