Screen size and browser size?

If you have a screen resolution of 1366 x 768 whats your browser window size?

its obviously not 1366 x 768

is there a way to see this for other screen sizes?

If you want the renderale size, this can be grabbed by a quick bit of javascript accessing the window.screen property (for example). There are other ways as well.

It depends on the browser and how you define "window". I think of a window as the thing that pops up when an application is opened. It can be any size up to the screen resolution if the task bar auto-hides or if the browser is in full-screen mode.

If you maximize the browser window size, it will maximize to 1366px x 768px.

The actual viewport area in the browser is a little bit smaller than that vertically, and it is further affected by the overflow bar horizontally (and possibly vertically too).

If you hit F11 on your browser (to enable fullscreen), and apply the following style:
Code:
element.style {
    margin: 0;
    overflow: hidden;


}
You will be able to fill your screen resolution with the contents of a webpage.
