It's your choice! I suspect that their IT dept will only test mainstream config combos.
chinaco, I'd like to phrase that in a more technically correct way.
No one needs to asks a web developer to 'support' a Mac, XP, Vista, or Linux, or any specific browser. Web site developers should put up web sites that comply with the published standards
. If they do that, then any of us can go complain to our browser or OS maker to fix their product if it does not display a standards compliant web page correctly.
If the web page is not standards compliant, we should complain to the web page developer.
IE is poor in this regard - but developers have coded for it's mistakes because of it's popularity. But that is dwindling, firefox and others are gaining.
FireFox, Safari, Camino, Opera, Sea Monkey all have much more 'green' than IE in this chart:
