    Are designers forgetting that 50% of web users still have a screen height resolution of 1024px or less?

    Working on a template and just realized that it does not fit well with screens that are 1024px or shorter, in height.

    Was browsing as well around with my resolution set at the height of 1024 pixels and it seems like designers are not keeping in mind that 50% of web users still have screen resolutions on their desktops of 1024 pixels or less, according to rapidtables.com here:

    I don't think they are forgetting I think that those statistics and their interpretation leave a little to be desired.

    From all the UX reviews that I have read site visitors don't mind scrolling vertically but hate scrolling horizontally. I concentrate on that but it is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve due to the preponderance of small screen devices now. These small screens inhibit some of the graphics and functionality that clients want for their site visitors. As a result sites end up getting dumbed down for all users due to this requirement.
