Developing for IE or for Firefox

I am currently developing a PHP script and the testing environment I use is Firefox; however, I have noticed many incompatibility issues when testing my scripts in IE ... do you guys think that the other way might work better, i.e. developing scripts for IE and then testing them back in Firefox ? The goal, of course, is to minimize the amount of extra work needed to make my scripts compatible for both IE and Firefox.

I dont thin there will be issues wit the server side coding...it runs the same in all the browser.

Most the websites have compatibility issues with the design.

Yep, with the design. It's like CSS is interpreted quite differently by IE and Firefox, and that's really annoying because its very difficult to guess which CSS lines are misinterpreted. It's like we have to write the code twice !

Re: Developing for IE or for Firefox

dont worry about firefox, its gone down the toilet
based on chrome now(check source-code as evidence) and it is slow

if you test your stuff in a browser use chrome in my opinion (and a month ago I hated everything google)
Server side isnt even reaching the browser hence it is used for security checks, just watch out for javascript and css as they are both picked up differently in different browsers...and be carefull when trying the new html as the full standards wont be implemented in browsers yet.
