Browser Accessibility


There is a wide range of external factors that will affect how a web page will look to the user. For instance, PC and Mac use a different dots-per-inch (dpi) measurement which means text usually displays larger on a PC. Also Mac computers provide anti-alias text, which gives it a smoother appearance.

There are many other reasons why a web page may not be visually consistent. Some of these relate to the user's computer and their personal browsing preferences, and others to the way browsers actually work.


Website designers need to be aware of all these variations and design their web pages in order to be seen well by most users.


The most important browser considerations for web site designers are:


  • Font
  • Color
  • Page Dimensions
