Not testing in all browsers is a good way to get your boss/client very angry with you. None of the big three interpret standards the same way, and none of them is 100% standard compliant. IE8 won't be either. Passing the Acid2 test and being relatively standards compliant is not a safe replacement for testing

Yeah it seems only people that actually have to develop real web sites for a living understand this. It's not as simple as making sure your code is standards compliant and "knowing" it will work. It probably wont.
