Looking at the pictures of the A380, the windows appear to be relatively small compared to other plane windows. Has that something to do with structural strength (windows can't be as big as normal) or are the windows normal sized.

Maybe an illusion, but when you compare the size of the window against the size of the doors on the A380 and any other modern airliner it seems small to me (assuming doors are equally sized in height on all planes).

Do others find the windows on recent Airbus aircraft smaller than that of other manufacturers?
The A300 seemed to have windows more equivalent to other similar sized aircraft such as the 767 however whenever I fly one sector maybe on a 757 and return on an A320, I'm always amazed at the difference. The A340 is just as bad (older ones are horrid in my oppinion - no height for tall people in the window seats!).
I'm sure the A380 will have windows just as small as all the other Airbus types, sadly.

The cool thing about the windows on 380 is that there are no blinds, you just
put you´re hand near it and the windows automaticly gets dark(blue?).........
