I ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY HATE IT when websites resize my browser window.
I run 1280x1024 desktop res, but I keep my browsers sized around 1024x768, because most websites display their best at that resolution.
If they want me to freaking maximize my browser, TELL ME IN THE CRAPPY SPLASH PAGE THEY HAVE THAT LISTS REQUIREMENTS FOR THE SITE, rather than forcing me to size my browser back down after they've manually maximized it for me :mad:
Sorry, I don't normally rant on dev forums, but this has to be among the worst design practices out there. Flash developers tend to be guilty of it the most.
I also hate it when they open in a new window, and take away all my toolbar options.. That is easier to deal with, though - I just close the website and never visit it again
So, my fellow devs, heed my words.. If you want me to look at your website, don't freaking do the above 2 things so many websites are guilty of.
