Screen resolutions are a wonderful thing, but did you know that the most popular resolution until now was just 1024x768? Yes. How would one use a screen with that resolution, I've had up and above 1024x768 for nearly a decade and a half now. But, according to independent web analytics company, StatCounter, and their research arm, StatCounter Global Stats, that for the first time ever, 1366x768 has become the most popular screen resolution worldwide, overtaking 1024x768.

StatCounter CEO Aodhan Cullen says:

 

The data reflects a continuing trend of users moving to larger screen resolution sizes. The screen resolution size people are using is a critical factor for developers when it comes to web design, particularly in the case of fixed width web pages.

 

StatCounter began tracking screen resolutions in March of 2009, and recorded that 1024x768 had been the dominant screen size across the world, keep in mind this excludes mobile use. In March 2009, 1024x768 made up 41.8-percent of total use, and has since fallen to 18.6-percent in March of this year. Over the same time period, 1366x768 has grown from just 0.68-percent to 19.28-percent.
