I know you're not going to like this answer, but: whatever I need to. If the expected audience of a site is going to be running Lynx 1.0 on a 30 year old computer, then I make sure my site works in Lynx 1.0 on a 30 year old computer. You may want to specialize in certain browsers, but then you are only going to be able to give a quality product to a certain segment of the market: namely, the segment whose audience uses the browsers you code towards. This might end up being fine, as it might not behoove you to learn how to support browsers used by the audiences of 1% of the market. My point is simply that we seem to continue to think in terms of browsers instead of the people behind those browsers.
