I trust that by developing to Firefox/Chrome/etc. that Opera should behave correctly for the most partI've found it better to check in Opera first. While Firefox does an excellent job of touching all the bases, they sometimes don't have 100% coverage or they let errors slide through you wouldn't otherwise catch. Opera doesn't cover all the bases but, what they do cover, is usually very thorough.
You might want to test just to make sure stuff works on an iPhone and Android emulator if you don't have the real phones available.Emulators it is then! :)
Check your logs- that will tell you what browsers people are using to visit your site. Don't ignore the ones without a lot of page views- those people could be bailing because your site doesn't work with their browser.Will do, thanks for the tip :)
Note, I think you mean Chrome 4.0 (there is no 4.1 yet). happy!On "About Google Chrome" it reads as:
Google ChromeSo my assumption was "It's V4.1" - So I'm probably just misinterpreting it.
Well, nothing beats Firebug for debugging, which is why I choose to test against Firefox first.It's my go-to check too, though mainly because it's just my preferred browser.
I don't get any Opera usersThe point is to make valid markup, not to design to a browser. My point is Opera is more likely to find errors in your markup which is the point of debugging.
Mac IE 5 and Mac NN 4.I hadn't even heard of these before :/
The ones you really have to worry about are ones that rely on font availability and font sizing to "work."That's quite worrying for me - I use this for low-height cells sometimes:
<td class="something"><span style="font-size: 1px;"> </span></td>
I use this for low-height cells sometimes:
I consider them my "acid tests." There's little doubt no one is using these, but if it flies in these, I'm feeling good about the implementation.I wouldn't think so since their implementations of the standards is so poor I don't know what it proves. If a broken calculator can still show 2+2=4. does that mean anything?
I don't know what it proves.

In regards to what you say about rendering engines, while in theory what you say is true, I've found that when it comes to actual web designing Chrome and Safari are not always identical.
What about smart phones?
