I'd think browser support would be much more of a 'reader facing' issue than 
an 'admin facing' issue.  That's not to say that wp-admin area isn't 
important to keep highly functional. ;)

But now, in hindsight, given the discussion of securing the admin area, I 
guess I can understand why the question was regarding what browsers properly 
support the admin area (or vice-versa)... ah well.

I'm guessing a list could be compiled, and that the lead devs probably have 
some set in their minds (and on their computers)...

Again, misunderstanding. We're not talking about what is *displayed* on the
site (ie theme/template/whatever); we're talking about the application
itself, the most obvious part of which is wp-admin.

I thought that was obvious...
