As with all things, it depends on the situation. In the project I'm
currently working on, we're writing to the standard because we can't
assume a specific browser or even a specific operating system.

If you've got a project where you know what browser will be used by the
vast majority of your readers, you should probably at least consider
developing to the browser and not the standard.
