Amen, Mike. I do most of my work on my laptop, which is limited to 800x600
resolution. There's nothing more maddening than having to scroll around on
pages that insist "you must be running 1024x768 resolution"... and in an
attempt to bring this a little more on-topic, this and other
browser-proprietary junk, oversized images, excessive use of frames, and
other stuff that slows down pages are particularly annoying when visiting
manufacturers' tech-support pages.

When I'm having a problem with your product, and I want to look up
information, FAQs or hardware drivers, the last thing I care about is how
fancy your animated logo at the top of every page is.
