I have just visited this site and it is very interesting.  You are asked to take
a test which makes use of various HTML tags and asks you how your browser
handles it.  The results are available on the site, so you get a pretty
accurate idea of which browsers are supporting which tags.  Since it
is a survey, many browsers are tested.  This is a great site for anyone who
designs web pages.
