Please don't fall into the habit of only thinking about desktop
computers. "Chrome,
Safari and Firefox and IE"? That's not enough.

We should also be testing in iOS, Android, and more — both phone and tablet
sizes. Which is Safari on iOS, Android browser, Chrome mobile, Firefox
mobile, Opera mobile and mini, etc. I know it's more work, but this is what
we do, make websites for people. People who use a wide diversity of
devices. If things are well coded with progressive enhancement techniques,
then most stuff will work on all these devices. We should test on such
devices as well.

Testing before deployment — on a variety of browsers AND devices — will
prevent us from shipping broken stuff like this:
