    Two monitors... yes or no!

    A lot of us having two monitors.... WHY?

    In a post i mentioned that i used dreamweaver and firefox, each on one monitor. That way you can work in dw and view in ff without having to switch.

    Tell me how you do it......

    lol i would just f12 to preview... i dont have two monitors and have been working this way from god knows when...... surviving well..

    i can understand two monitors for pshop, 1 monitor for palettes and stuff... but two monitors for dw? hmmmmmmm.........

    and my work area does not have room for two monitors... since i already have 1 laptop and 1 crt and tons of working files on desk.

    At home I have a single Apple 23" HD Cinema (its gorgeous)
    At work I have dual 20" Dells. For web development, I really really really really prefer two decent sized monitors. On my right I have dreamweaver. 60% code window 40% file browser. On my left I have 50% page im working on and the other 50% is usually some code examples/itunes/email or something.
    At home the 23" is nice for watching movies/slideshows and what not. And did I mention anything Apple looks sexy sitting on your desk?

    I would never go back to a single monitor, I have had a triple monitor setup for a number of years.

    Hermie, just drag your web browser to your second monitor.

    Two monitors is the way to go! Three would be nice

    That's what i do all the time. How does some of you pro's do it with photoshop. I hear stuff about the panels on one site and the working image on the other....

    The only thing that would be better than the two I have now would be a third.
