Here is something of interest.

[Scanit, a Belgium based security firm, offer a free test service on their website that will check your browser against a list of known vulnerabilities. After running the tests on your browser you will get a listing of your vulnerabilities. Vulnerabilities are rated high, medium and low risk.

If your browser passes all tests you will receive a rating of "no risk".

So how did I fare? I use the Firefox browser and my result was "no risk".]

It would be interesting to see how Mozilla and Opera fare.

Lobster, that Wiki page layout could confuse someone into thinking that they are looking at the results of a security scan that was just run on their computer. Shocked

Nobody apart from me is that stupid

However if you feel it requires improvement - it is a wiki . . .
I have added a link - hope that is a little better
