That table gives a nice overview which browser supports which metakeys.
Allthough I never use quirksmode as a reference, its listings with

Since the OP had troubles with support in different browser for the

Which website would you advise to look up this kind of information?
Depends on what kind you mean.
I mean the kind that says which browser(version) supports which metakey.
Quirksmode.org is okay for an overview
of (some) browser differences, just ignore the attempts at explanation.
I take your word for it their explanations are bad.
I possibly couldn't comment on that myself since I never used that site for anything else than quick compatibility lookups. ;-)
But if you have some other resource that collects this kind of information ('this kind' meaning: 'browser compatibility lists for a lot of stuff an every day webdeveloper needs'), I'll be glad to hear where to find it.
This quirksmode happens to be the only one I know of that has so much.
