  Internet Qualys' Free Browser Checkup - is your web browser an easy target? 
I hadn't been to this site in a long time so I thought I'd give it another go. Six months ago I passed all the tests but now I'm failing three of them. What's going on? The bad guys keep finding more ways to use Internet Explorer to get inside your computer and Microsoft can't keep up! There are now two or more security flaws that Microsoft has not released fixes for. That means if you surf the wrong place you can end up with Spyware, Viruses, Trojan Horses, Keyloggers, and you name it.
For your own peace of mind, take ten minutes and try out this browser test. If you are using the web browsers Opera, Mozilla, Netscape, or FireFox  you won't have any problems passing the tests. I personally have switched to Opera as my main browser. If I need Internet Explorer for a certain site, that's the only place I go.
