IE8 should work but since I don't have Windows I haven't been able to
do extensive testing.  Most of my testing is done on the following
browsers in order of frequency:


In general Chrome and Firefox have far better development tools
associated than other browsers and so this is why this is the case.

The past IE problems were pretty-IE specific (the big one was handling
of button elements) but because IE refused to support standards in
some areas, a few lesser known browsers became unsupportable as well,
mostly lesser known text-based browsers.
