How do you manage platforms

How do you manage platforms in your tests?  Let's say you need to run the same tests on Chrome and Firefox.  What field do you use for that?  Do you create different tests for each platform?

    I've not had the need to do this yet but one way is to use the Environment field.  It's a custom field you can populate.  It's visible in the test cycle player and could be used to execute a test against different environments (browsers in your case) by selecting Chrome for the first test, then the tester would click the "Start a new test execution" link, change the environment to Firefox and execute the test step.  I think that would work but you'd need to check how that would look with your current reporting setup - you might find that you'd want to create two of each test.
