The testing group all know the entire system. I will stick with assigning by browser/platform. Ancillary question: I like your suggestion about having each tester focus on different test cases. I am thinking if I have all test the most critical scenarios, I can give each person a different set of outlying test cases. Does that sound about right? I worry about the risk of missing things that only go wrong on one browser/platform.

The folks I will use for testing all know the entire system. They will be able to look at everything from UI to data. in the past, however, I have noticed that some of them have a tendency to test exactly what they are specifically asked to test. Thanks for asking about that, and for reminding me that the 80/20 applies here! I will make sure my more autonomous users are assigned the more critical platforms to test.
