Which is the most problematic browser to use to bench test code on? And is it worth adding text only browsers to see how the site renders in versions like lynx, as I know a few die hard linux/lynx people out there.
Currently I just use FF and opera, chrome and IE6&7, I'm sure that some of these browsers use the same rendering engine, but for me I (for the time being) just use FF to test everything out on. Most people I talk to say that FF is the programmers choice, but I'm not too sure, especially as FF seems to be getting buggy when used in conjunction with JRE (not sure of version) text not entered quickly enough, having to wait for the cursor to catch up with what I entered etc.
So I guess what I am asking is for advice to see what the general consensus is for browser testing, and whether it matters what the platform is too, though I doubt that has much impact, I could be wrong, I don't use linux - I tried, but failed..
Any suggestions welcome, there may even be a thread I havn't seen yet ;-p
