No. Mainly because screen resolution isn't a variable that's that pertinent
to web design.

What is important is the browser view port size, and that, of course, can
vary widely.

You could make different CSS files and then reload them dynamically using
javascript based on the width of the browser, but that seems to be overkill
for most applications IMHO.
