Does Anyone have maybe a website that compares the differences between the browsers? IE vs FF vs Chrome?
I keep finding problems but i need to have it all summarized in one place.

Weegillis previously pointed me in the direction of http://www.quirksmode.org/ which has really straight forward table comparisons of various browser compatability issues.

You can check browsershots.
Microsoft (I know, right?) actually has a nice comparison tool that comes with their web editor. It includes comparison checking for IE 6, 7 and 8 (although the checking for 8 seems a bit buggy at the moment) as well as Firefox if you have it installed. In addition, the program has an online emulator that lets you also see how the page would appear in Opera on Mac platforms. You can even overlay the browser output over a PSD to check that everything is properly positioned.
Adobe also has an online service. Like Microsoft's SuperPreview, Adobe's BrowserLab comes with Dreamweaver. It also allows overlay and side-by-side comparisons, but their tool is completely online while most of SuperPreview runs on the local machine. SuperPreview thus can give the extra feature of previewing and testing sites that are running on the local development server.
