What Screen Size Should I Use?

This is one of the more divisive topics for webmasters. If you ask a few different webmasters each may give you a different answer. So with the risk of being shot down in flames here is my opinion on the matter.

My preferred options is to always design for the 800x600 screen size. This is the size the majority of visitors use. Those that are on 640x480 are a shrinking minority of users, do not worry about upsetting them because you will annoy many more people with 800x600 resolution and those on higher resolutions as well if you design for 640x480. Unfortunately it is impossible to please all of the people all of the time
