The Differing Sizes

“I’m about ready to go home, aye?”  –  Marty

We’ve got a new task for today!  It’s to type about three things about website resizing.

Example of Fluid

Example of Fluid

Fluid

This is Coca-Cola Global: Soft Drink & Beverage Products.  It is a Fluid type of resizing website.  The point of a fluid website is to have the website content resize to accomodate the size at which the user has changed their web browser to be.  For example, if you were to have a 800×600 sized web browser as a starting point, expanding the browser would result in the website’s content to “justify” itself to make the website flow as easy as it would if it were a smaller browser.  Why not try it out?

Fixed

This is Westpac New Zealand.  It is a Fluid type of resizing website.  The point of a fixed website is to keep the website’s content the same size no matter how the user may stretch the web browser’s size.  For example, if the user was to have opened the website on a web browser sized at 800×600, the user would see that the website’s content would be the same size, in every way, if they had stretched the web browser window to a size of 1280×1024.  The name “Fixed” doesn’t just mean it’s been spruced up!

Example of Flash

Flash

This is SectionSeven Inc.  It is a Flash website.  The point of a Flash website is to obtain the user’s attention through visual stimulation.  The website is made to look good through movement of images or text.  Looking into the site, users will find that interacting with the flash is the main way of navigation.  I suggest giving the website a try.  It’s pretty cool.

 

That’s it from me for today!  Keep it real!~
