800*600 - but we shouldn't have to. It's a pain in the arse.
Don't you just love Flash?

If it's one of my personal sites, then 800. At work, then I force myself to make sure it fits on 640.
Luckily, the number of people on 640 is dropping, it's now around 15%. More people actually use 1024, at 20%. Maybe within a year or two it will drop to less than 5% then it can prolly be consigned to the bin.
I'm actually worse when it comes to watching my colour depth! I might be saving to 256 colour gifs but I use adaptive palettes for each one so you end up needing more colours.

Being a corporate developer for well defined intranet enbironment, we develop for 1024x768 pixels. Gives the user the widest space to do their work...

You all realize that within a year or two we'll be having the same conversations but then we'll be complaining over the people who still use an 800 x 600. It'll never be any better

The general resolution that I design towards is 800x600, for now. But, I've found that it's so important to have a site, especially a front page to the site,. that looks acceptable in any resolution. Besides, you should still be keeping a pages size at an acceptable size for any dial-up users. So, when you follow standard sizing practices, you can generally keep your pages fine in most resolutions at the same time. They seem to generally work hand in hand, at least most times.
But, for a corporate intranet, I once created a site that was independent of resolution. It looked different for different resolutions. I wouldn't recommend this for a corporate web site though. The site should look the same to all customers, with the exception of multimedia content.

It's not a "linear" progress... resolution doesn't increase with technology! 800x600 is a good balance and this makes the most sense. Any resolution greater than 1024x768 tends to be harder on the eyes, because icons and features are generally smaller. So, twenty years from now, it's doubtful we'll be complaining about users at 60540x4391290 ...

800x600 is good for general purposes, but your sites target group is what matters most.
