What browsers do you use to test your Web sites?
There are a number of different web browsers in use today. Not all web browsers work exactly alike, so a page that renders well using one browser might not render as well using another browser. For a webmaster, this means adopting an approach of either not caring much about whether your site works well under all browsers, or testing you site with several different browsers. So, for today's poll we thought we would ask which browsers you use to test your site.  View poll
