June 3, 2010

There are thousands and thousands of website themes and templates available over the Internet. Website Developers, Bloggers know how important it is to present their Stuff online. Some make use of the available Softwares, Themes, Widgets to beautify their Web pages, while some create their own. No Matter it is a Small or Big Company, everyone cares for the better appearance of their websites…

We all Know the Famous Quote,

“First Impression is the Best Impression”

Though You have the Finest Looking User Interface with lots of Web 2.0 widgets, It is Necessary for you to have the knowledge on how much part of your website is visible to your Users under normal conditions. Normal Conditions? When I say that, I mean how exactly does your website look as soon as a User enters your site before performing any action on the web page (which includes scrolling)

Talking about Scrolling.
It is Obvious that Most of the times you cannot present every information/content of your Website in one shot, and that too in a Single Frame of the Browser Window! It is Necessary that one has to Scroll down and see as the content flows..

A Good Website Builder always takes care to place the Important Entities (like Widgets/Buttons/Navigation Links which he feels as important) as prominent as possible. To do that one has to try to bring the ‘Crucial Objects’ to the top of page which doesn’t involve Scrolling/Much of the Scrolling!!

Test Whether Your ‘Crucial Objects’ are Visible
I found an online Tool Called Browser Size which is in Google Labs that helps you to Identify what part of your Web page is Visible to your Users, and what part is not?

You Just have to enter your URL and you can Visually Witness the Result. Here is the Result for Chaaps.
