  1. So we could summarize, that it is very difficult to make a fluid page good-looking. Okay. But I don't think they are a "pain from the past". I am just redoing my website. It will still take some time but it will be good when it will be ready. We'll see then.

    I can't concentrate on reading a line of text longer than about 600px

    Wouldn't this probably work with bigger font-size? If a web designer uses the unit "em" to specify font-sizes and you have a big screen and therefor a high setting for the standart font-size, it can be readable. And only because a page is fluid, it doesn't mean, that the text has to be spread all over the screen. For example if you make a 2 column layout, you have even on a 2048px wide screen only 1024px Text, which is what conventional websites also have (but it's their only column then). And it doesn't hurt to have 2 columns on a 1024px screen because there is still enough space for 2 columns.

    Examples... what about this page? (No, this is not a link because I mean the forum itself)

    And finally about the criticism of my website I have to say the following: My website isn't perfect. I'm working but I don't have much time atm. I've just made a new index page but of course there is still a lot of work to do until the next major release. The new version will also be fluid and by now it looks really good. It uses big symbols in a Mac-like dock/bar with hovering zooming them in to use space even better. If I feel like it, I'll post a preview version. By the way: I have a background image for screen widths up to 2048px and it takes less than 50kB and it is a progressive image and of course there won't be anything blocking you from using the website while it is not fully loaded in the new version.

  2. Hey, what about a real discussion?

    Most websites have a fixed width in Pixel (like 1024px or so). I always design my websites so, that they can fully expand to the width of the user's screen and if that isn't enough, it'll grow downwards. But some websites are even fixed in width and height and scroll the content in a frame. Artists say, it helps the designer make the page look exactly as he/she intended to.

    I think it's part of the webdesigners' job to make the website look cool on every screen und fully use the given space because this is also art, even a more difficult one.

    What do you think about static website dimensions? And why do you think so?
