    I'm using Check Browser Compatibility, Cross Platform Browser Test - Browsershots to test it. Though these are the browsers I have installed on my PC:
    Firefox
    Opera
    Safari
    Internet Explorer
    Chrome

    So if the site works in these major browsers, they should be in others..

    I have a pc laptop and a mac osx desktop.

    Desktop has Opera, Firefox, Safari, ie7 - through parrallels.

    Laptop ie 6,ie 8,ie 7, chrome, firefox and safari.

    I find there is no substitute for looking at the site within the browser and on a machine running the browser natively.

    I know I'm lucky to have the option of each major browser on a native machine.

    multiple ie copies running through Virtual PC.

    Yeah Browsershots and the like are good -

    unfortunately you cannot easily test the shots whilst moving the window or examine some forms of dynamic content.

    A good standby though agreed.

    I usually use browsershots, but here is a good one for just IE. It's a little simple, but works fast: IE NetRenderer - Browser Compatibility Check -
