I have heard this question asked numerous times, so I am in the process of
creating just such a site. To do this properly and comprehensively is much
more work than any one person can handle. Help would be much appreciated.
Perhaps someone would offer to test a particular browser, since I can only
test on mac/linux/windows/xwin for linux.

I would also like to expand this site to be a central index for web
developers - it has been done but not anywhere as comprehensively as it
should (unless i'm missing something? - any url's i'm missing out on)

Thank you,


btw - sorry for responding so late, took a while to get the free time to do
this project.
