The article also included this quote from Steve Jobs that I found kind of interesting:

Competing browsers are part of what drives innovation on the web. Developing for the ever-changing hardware and software landscape of the web is definitely a challenge. It is important to test websites thoroughly – you want your users to have a good experience regardless of the device and browser they are using.
