vulnerable for clickjacking and a cookie warning (brought to us by AppHarbor making use of simple http requests...no pentesting whatsoever...)

enjoy,

Not a test bit another topic of interest...

See: http://techblog.netflix.com/2013/06/html5-video-in-ie-11-on-windows-81.html
FEE is against: https://www.fsf.org/blogs/community/cancel-netflix-if-you-value-freedom
Should DRM come to HTML5 and will other browser makers being urged to follow these standards.
Netflix, Google and Microsoft are pro DRM in HTML5.
Will this mean the end of the open web we know today?

It means not needing to depend on Flash any more which has more holes than swiss cheese.
It means they'll now need to find the insecurities in HTML5. I'm sure it will not take long.  :'(

Hi bob3160,

That is already happening, while you start to discuss this: http://deadliestwebattacks.com/2012/05/25/html5-unbound-part-2-of-4/ (link author = Mike)
With the new features come new insecurities and again the culprit is spelled like js, right javascript. Example see here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12480892/framebuffer-html5-canvas-audio-api-insecure-operation-error -> audio and web page must be same origin
so you'd have to go to  about:config in firefox and disable the security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy. (credits David Humphrey).

So test how your bowser performs in the HTML5 test: http://html5test.com/index.html
Google Chrome has issues with Microdata.  459 points + 13 bonus points for me...
A non-html5 browser would score 78 points, but will render web applications.

See: http://www.appremover.com/
downloadable free version http://www.appremover.com/download
AppRemover enables you to thoroughly uninstall many antivirus and antispyware products from your computer. It removes traces that are often left behind by the standard uninstaller, including registry keys, folders and files. AppRemover offers support for many popular antivirus/antispyware products.
Is it better as RevoUninstaller? Can it be used on an emergency USB?

Hi bob3160,

Credits go where they should.
You win. No Competition.  ;D
I just have to check the browser test results for Chrome on my new Win8 machine.  :P
The test was done on Vista.

Only for advanced users that know what they do!

Users with firefox that wanna go on without Java,
will find that Oracle will not uninstall everything firefox related and leaves debri behind
Whenever everything in combination with Java has been uninstalled,
just open up  regedit, go to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\MozillaPlugins
delete all subkeys there starting with @java.com.
Also delete the subkey HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-DEC7-0000-0001-ABCDEFFEDCBA}.
Moreover also delete file: C:\WINDOWS\system32\npDeployJava1.dll.
Before doing this make a copy of your registry in case anything goes wrong,
