Got a chuckle... site would not work at all under FF 7x with noscript... had to tell noscript to allow the page.:)
For fun, checked with IE 8 (64, running xp64 pro) and it came in at 3 on their four point scale... but the pictures were prettier.
Don't use chrome, safari, or opera so no commentary on those.
The particular tests this site uses seem to indicate, more than anything, the inability of the OLDER browsers to operate in today's web... hence that "kill IE 6" anthem.
This is what it checks:
Does the browser help protect you from websites that are known to distribute socially engineered malware?
Does your browser provide a distinct warning when you download an application that is of higher risk but not yet confirmed as malware?
Does the browser have a feature that can help protect you from phishing sites?
Does your browser help you identify the domain you're on by distinguishing it within the URL?
Attacks on your browser
Does the browser have the ability to restrict an extension or a plugin on a per site basis?
Does the browser have a system for auto updating browser extensions?
Does the browser process utilize Windows Protected Mode or implement a similar mechanism such that browser processes cannot modify parts of the system that it doesn’t have access to?
Does the browser extend the sandbox such that it cannot read data from parts of the system that it doesn’t have access to?
Does the browser benefit from Windows Operating System features that protect against arbitrary data execution?
Does the browser benefit from Windows Operating System features that randomize the memory layout to make it harder for attackers to find their target?
Does the browser benefit from Windows Operating System features that protect against structured exception handling overwrite attacks?
