Web pages look different on my screen compared to another screen
While our websites are optimized to display adequately in most scenarios, there are a multitude of factors which may affect the way a page is displayed. The factors which influence how a website looks on your monitor are:
- Browser type (Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera, Lynx, Safari etc.)
- Browser version - new browsers support more features, and suspend archaic features. Older browsers set aside more room for navigation buttons.
- Operating System (Windows, Java, Unix, Apple)
- Monitor Size and Resolution - monitors can be set to different resolutions which mean a greater or lesser part of the webpage is displayed in the same area.
- Monitor colours - Colours appear differently on Apple, Windows and LCD screens for example, and the number of colours a monitor can display varies greatly, from 256 to 16 million. Monitors can also be set brighter or darker according to your preferences.
