...between firefox and internet explorer.
Not only is the picture bigger on IE, but the resolution is far better than on firefox!
I don't use the full monitor screen- I have to leave a gap around it to stop having a dreadful headache after a few minutes. The bit of desktop image around the edge is enough to stop that happening.

Do you have your IE window set to 125% zoom (the default I think). I have my IE windows at a custom 120% and Chrome is set to 120% also - with the browsers side-by-side ipernity's photos and resolution look identical. On other websites IE seems to make things look bigger, especially fonts.

I have a large monitor so I have set the display's DPI to 125% in the Control Panel and this makes Windows fonts and icons a bit bigger, but has the side effect of ruining the layout of some badly programmed websites and software menus.

I have also turned off the window transparency as I find it easier to concentrate when I can't see what's below the window. The setting for that is found here: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance

IE is 100%. That is the default as far as I know.
I leave the transparency as it doesn't bother me.

You're right, my IE defaults to 125% zoom because it is matching the display's DPI setting. Not sure why it does that.
