    The test is available here: http://browsercheck.qualys.com/index.php

    The first page after you start the test simply outlines some information that can be found about/throught your browser.

    However, the more interesting section is available directly from here: http://browsercheck.qualys.com/instructions.php This section includes many "hack" tests, that test to see if vulnerabilities can be exploited in your browser.

    IE 6 with all the latest patches is vulnerable to at least one of them, I believe.

    Well, it didn't bend my system one little bit, JC. But at least it didn't try to spook me with that old JavaScript con about "revealing the contents of my hard disk".

    The only issue I encountered was it revealing the contents of the clipboard - but only because of an incorrect configuration (although how it got turned back on beats me :doubt:).
