Browser resolution is measure by how many graphical points (pixels) per inch on a Web browser window. Logically, browser resolution should be identical to the screen resolution, for example, FireFox.

But there is an exception, for example, Internet Explorer (IE). If you set your computer to 1280x1024 pixels on a screen of 11.5x8.5 inches, your screen resolution is about 120DPI. The browser resolution of FireFox will be 120PDI, but the browser resolution will be 90DPI, much lower than FireFox.

Browser resolution must be considered when you design your Web page, because your page size will be affected by the resolution of Web browsers used by your visitors. In the above example, if you design a Web page of 840 pixels wide, it will be displayed as 7 inches wide in FireFox. However, the same Web page will be displayed as 9.33 inches in IE.
