Which browsers to test with?

If I want to test a new website, which browsers should I use?

I can think of:

IE
Mozilla
Safari
Chrome
Netscape

How far back (as far as version) is sufficient for each browser?

Are there any browsers that are not on my list that should be?  I guess I am shooting for 90% of the market or better.

netscape is out.

see updated statistics here: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp 
if limited resources, I'll go for support of 80% and let the last 20% update their browsers = just a questiion of short time (for old browsers)

Here is the list http://www.webdevelopersnotes.com/design/browsers_for_windows.php3.  You have all the most popular browsers listed and should cover you.  Opera is probably should be on your list.
