    Cross-browser testing

    Which browsers (and versions) do you guys think are ones that needs to be tested and perfected in when creating a website for a client?

    Thanks!

    As many as is reasonably possible to test on.

    You should be testing in all major browsers with a minimum of at least 2 versions back.

    then depending on the sites topic and target market, other browser versions may need to be considered.

    there is no "correct answer" to your question without more specifics, and even then, that question can truly only be answered by looking at your current visitors usage of the site to know what browser(s) you should be focusing on.

    One of my client sites has always been heavily visited by IE6 browsers up until about a year ago, I noticed IE6 is only about 2% now... So I am now able to do something design things I couldn't before. Although you may be building a site for a "client"... He visitor that uses and views the site "target audience"... Is the real "client"... Of all my clients, I can't remember when any of the were not using a "modern browser", so sometimes explaining and showing them why certain things need to be a certain way is difficult ... Because they only see the site in "their browser"...

    Only test on the latest browsers and force everyone else to upgrade their browsers by placing this code between your <head> tags

    <!--[if lt IE 10]>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    window.location = "http://browsehappy.com/";
    </script>
    <![endif]-->


    ..of course if you follow my advice you may never be employed ever again because you will most likely be fired! You'll never know until you try
