Hello Addy! Do you have all the main-stream browsers installed and how often do you use the them to stay ahead of the game?


I usually try to have the latest + bleeding-edge versions of most browsers installed for testing. On my Mac at the moment there's..

  1. Chrome: stable, beta, canary, Chromium (tip-of-tree) installed
  2. Firefox: Quantum, Firefox Developer Edition/Nightly
  3. Safari: stable, a version of Safari Tech Preview that's often a few weeks old
  4. On my Android phone: Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Opera

For Edge, I'll usually have a VM setup for testing or take out a Surface from my drawer to test the current stable version.

I otherwise heavily rely on services like BrowserStack or WebPageTest to validate that my projects perform and render correctly on real devices.
