As my eyes have gotten older, I've generally left my resolution the same
(1280x1024, 1280x800 on my laptop) or increased it (1440x1152 at the
office) and INCREASED my text sizes (not just for the browser). The
higher resolutions give better rendering of details, such as serifs on
text, and the larger text sizes keep it readable. I do this because when
I'm working on things, I like to have as much on the screen as I can
get, and lowering the resolution decreases the amount of information I
can put there.
