Boris did a pretty good job of summing it up.. Ideally, if you find that 
you write code that works for IE, in my limited experience, you may find 
that your code does NOT work for the standards-compliant browsers unless 
you're very diligent.. I develop mostly against Safari (on Mac's) and 
test w/ Firefox and lastly pester IE when needed.  I'll have to keep an 
eye out for who uses what, but with what I've seen so far with my 
existing PHP based application (soon to be replaced hopefully), it's 
primarily being used by Safari, IE6, and Firefox users.. I'm glad I 
don't see many IE5 users as that browser is REALLY old and has even more 
problems than IE6 does.
