Somewhat interesting article and perhaps had a lot of enlightening facts
when it was written 2 and a half years ago. I think now however most of us
are aware of his basic points.

My question is could there be a difference in WIDTH between a Maximixed IE
browser on a Windows desktop at resolution 600x800 and a different Win
desktop same resolution. Presuming no sidebars visible.
