 Internet Scanit Browser Security Test - can you safely surf the big bad web?
Excellent browser tests. It flagged several things in Internet Explorer I wasn't up to date on. There is a real security difference between browsers. IE has over a dozen vulnerabilities that are tested and I failed several of them. I use Opera as my default browser and checked it. It only had 6 tests. Opera passed all the tests and the version I have isn't even up to date. I still have to use IE for surfing some sites, but now I can say I've seen a real difference. Another good browser test site is Qualys Browser Checkup. (Score at Qualys: IE failed one, Opera passed all)
