Browsers Used in the Tests

I've tried to test the various filters in as many popular CSS-capable browsers as possible. In some cases, I've relied on reports of browser behaviour from others and, in these cases, I've noted that and the source of the report.

Browsers that use the same CSS parsing and rendering engines have been grouped together. Also, I've grouped browsers in the same family together if there were no variation in their behaviour on these tests (for instance, Netscape 4.8 - 4.05). I've noted all these groupings in a table of equivalent browsers.

Alpha and beta browsers were omitted from the tests (with the exception of some Gecko-based browsers because several full production release browsers, the NS 6.x family, were based on a beta release of Gecko).

Results for those browsers that I don't have access to were either sent in by volunteer testers or were cribbed from other sites where results are given. In the latter case, all my borrowed results have been noted and referenced in the summary tables.

Lastly, until I get conformation from others, take my Windows IE results with a grain of salt as I used multiple IE installs on the same machine. I'm not convinced that the different IE installs are completely separate so the test results might be contaminated to some extent.
