I was planning to run this as a poll, but there are just too many options.
So, on what browsers and platforms do you test your pages?

Personally:

- WinXP, Opera 7
- WinXP, IE6
- WinXP, Netscape 4
- WinXP, Netscape 7
- RedHat Linux 8, Konqueror

Does anyone just develop Internet sites for a single browser client, and test no others?

On what browsers/platforms do you test?

The only proper way of doing things is to get all browsers for all platforms and test everywhere. Which I keep meaning to do... but never get round to it.

- WinXP, IE6
- WinXP, Moz1.0

I also have access to Win98, IE? but never think to use it!

The other thing I do is to try not to use too much 'clever' CSS - just basic blocks that *should* render properly in most browsers.

Is there any way of having multiple IE's on a single Windows Box?

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.

Oh yes, I'll add WinXP/Mozilla to my list, too... Tongue

In their cleverness, MS has IE update certain key system files when upgrading (apparently), so there's little chance of having multiple versions on the same Windows box, without multiple OS installations.

The first versions of IE5 included an option for an IE4 compatability mode, but it didn't seem quite the same as the original. Shame, really.

MacOS X / IE 5.x
MacOS X / Camino (Netscape, Mozilla... all use Gecko)
MacOS X / Safari

Win2000 / IE 5
Win2000 / IE 6

Mozilla looks the same in everything, so I don't worry about that. Also, Safari is based off of the rendering engine that KDE (Konqueror) uses, so that takes care of that lol.
