Windows do use DPI as a value when you set Custom DPI size. I wish they would use the DPI value at the other screen too.

About the scaling and zooming. what IE and opera and now chrome do is render the text and tables/css layout at a higher resolution, and zoom in the images. If the images would be natively at a higher resolution, say 200x200, and the web page at a good reference point 96DPI would specify the image at 100x100 (this can be done in the <img> tag), then the image would look nice and sharp at any dpi setting from 96 up to 192, given the browser does proper bicubic interpolation and the image does not containg very sharp details.

The same applies to DPI. It is necessary to know if you wanto be accurate in what you design or write, and it would scale well in the future, and it would provide an accurate reference point from general text and design scaling. The web pages should be able to scale and look good in most desktop and laptop resolutions and DPI situations.

It would require a learning curve by displaying the latency in ms instead of bars, but then again it would scale nicely into the future, when internet connections become faster.

We could call the resolution on monitors as VGA, WXGA, WUXGA etc instead of 640x480, 1280x768 or 1920x1200. We could put parking, slow, fast, very fast and too fast on the speedometer. We could dumb down anything and call it game. Just like they have in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer; they set the latency as bars, and no way to tell how much one bar represents. It was discovered that they were way too high range, and many people edited the config files so one bar would mean 25ms. And then they found out most people had more then 100ms latency any time, to any host.
