What Lastest Trends Should Be Use By Designers And Developers For Best Viewing Experience Of Any Website?

Every web developer or web designer wants to have their website to give users the same best experience no matter what the users screen size/resolution/operating system/browser is, but let’s face the fact,  screen size/resolution/operating system/browser does effect website experience.

I get asked the question often, especially by web developers and designers, what is the most common type of  screen size/resolution/operating system/browser. Well, to identify this we started capturing data on  screen size/resolution/operating system/browser for people who visited our SmashingApps.com. This is what we found
