    Thanks once again you dished up the link, Peaches.

    I bookmarked it again (after I'd been so silly to delete it once)
    Always a good thing to repeat these useful links now and again.
    (at least it's time-saving; didn't have to go through all the threads to find it :) )

    regards,
    slam

    p.s. still secure overhere

    Very interesting, thanks. :) I had Javascript enabled (often necessary), but it passed all other tests with the exception of the one (I forget its name) involving leaving a page.

    As a P.S. - the one additional thing I would have like to see would have been a summary of all test results after you finished them. And maybe even an overall "rating" of some kind.

    id only ever taken the test with IE which always passed. today i took it with ff for the first time and i failed the first test (javascript switched on), but passed the rest i disable java but not javascript. however, i passed all the javascript tests which made me feel safer

    and i agree with slammer_JvA, thanks for the link, it used to take me an age to find it sometimes :rolleyes:
