When designing a site with a fixed width, do you ever take the size of a bookmarks bar into consideration? For example, when designing for 1024×768 screen resolution, do you limit your site’s size to 800px to accommodate a (possible) bookmarks bar on the side?

Personally, I never browse with bookmarks on the side, but I haven’t been able to find any stats on this.

I never do that. I don’t know a single person that browses with a bookmarks area open consistently. With the standard of websites these days, I don’t think that’s even a thought.

I agree. Don’t worry about it.

Thirded. If you start trying to accomodate every popular browser add-on or tab, you’re only in for heartache. :)

Yeah… stick with a 960 width and you should be fine. 760 if you are still accommodating for 800×600 screens which are rare…
