You manually do it and when new ones come out you test it.

I use qunit and selenium to help with testing.

There are sites like http://www.TestSwarm.com, but I have not used it.

It is no different than testing any other application writing unit testing and trying it on different computer set ups.

If your developers test in all the browsers as they code, there is no issue here. I have minimum of 4 browsers open at a time.
