Being a web designer, one of the comments I hear very often is: can we move all the content “above the fold”. Usually, I try to educate my customers to use the term “above the scroll”. ”Above the scroll”, in web design, referrers to locating an item near the top of a web page so it can be viewed in a browser without scrolling.
In August the screen resolution market share was listed at
- 1024px X 768px | 40%
- 1280px X 800px | 18%
- 1280px X 1024px | 13%
- 1440px X 900px | 7%
- 800px X 600px | 5%
- Other | 17%
So this means as a web designer, if you want to keep all content “ above the scroll” then your maximum height for the website needs to be no grater then 768 pixles or 48em.
