How much testing?

How much testing do you do on your web solutions? In means of different browsers, screen settings, os and so forth. When you have DOM/JavaScript/CSS in your pages this is an even more important issue.

Most browsers are compatible with solutions working in IE and Mozilla, but how to look for bugs in other browsers. I try to follow W3C specs, but this is unfortunately no guarentee for success.

Firstly I use the w3.org validator for the html and CSS and correct any errors it throws up.

I test in IE6, Netscape 6 and 7, Mozilla and Opera. I also test on Mac Safari and IE.
To download almost any browser, to test, go here:

I some-times use this link to test the lay-out at different resolutions and on different platforms/browsers.

I also use this link to test in Safari on the Mac:

These will cover most lay-out issues. But to actually test the Javascript you need to do it manually.
