However the default display incudes a "panels" bar on the left side of the window.
For a couple of years I have used 984 px as page width for many sites, which is in the ball park with a lot of other developers at this point in the time-space continuum.
But....this Opera feature throws it out of whack, it gives a horizontal scroll bar when the window is sized at 1024x768.
Probably I am going to continue with 984, but I am interested in comments.
My development environment is 1280x1024, and I use a 1024x768 graphic for re-sizing program windows to see the effect. This also may have an influence, it may not be exact -- and of course browsers, monitors, etc. all vary.
As an afterthought I am including a screenshot of awstats browser stats for one site, showing opera usage as 0.2%. This site gets lots of use from adults at work, generally not developers.
Looks like awstats has the ability to display screen sizes, but I am not seeing any results there, so I gotta figure out how to grab that in log files.
