    Check your web browser's security online as well as the plugins it uses.

    Passed at both places but the second one "Browsertune" I have no faith in as two of the reasons it says you can fail the test are:

    browsers heavily modify with in-place patches installed by either Microsoft Windows Update or Netscape's SmartUpdate

    browsers heavily modify with in-place patches installed by "Service Packs" or other means

    This left me laughing as patches and service packs are released to fix security problems not create them.

    I surprised at this. But happy nonetheless.
