  Old  Dual Screen or large Widscreen

Hi I work in the web developing sector. Which means that I must often have multiple browsers open to switch back and forth. I'm just wondering what would you guys suggest as to what I should have. A dual screen setup or a large widescreen?

Haha, thanks. My quarrel with dual widescreen is rather that it looks too wide, almost like you can't see everything at once.

dual screens is probably the better way to go...get decent sized screens, 19 or 21 '' screens and go that way, if you go for one big wide one there might just be too much on one screen for your eyes to handle, thus slowing down your performance

Dualscreens are better, because you can run things side by side, were as one LARGE screen your still gonna wanna run only 1 fullscreen window, and have to constantly switch between windows during any kind of workflow.

Dual screens are preferable.
You can not only open few browser in them but you can better separate your work using both.

With dual or even triple screens you have physical seperation of your work environments. This is alot more usefull than one big screen imo.

Its a lot cleaner to just maximize or stack a bunch of browsers on the right screen while you have your editor on the left.

I guess I'm the oddball here - I prefer one large widescreen over two separate displays. I think it's because I prefer a cleaner workspace, and I tend to be more creative when my desk is clean.
