Right, but I try to understand them.

Or convince the majority not to use the pool.

Yeah, my typo, I meant 1366x768.  Statcounter says that 1366x768 is 41%
of web users.  1024x768 is another 24%.  Those two are 66% of users.

But under 15% of people use them.  So not worthy of a default.

in your browser, works best for you?
