The test results from BrowserAudit can provide valuable insights into the security features and vulnerabilities of different web browsers. While the site itself may not be as frequently updated as other security testing platforms, it can still offer a good starting point for evaluating the security of your browser.

As for improving your browser security, there are several steps you can take:

1. Keep your browser up to date: Make sure you are using the latest version of your browser, as updates often include security patches to address known vulnerabilities.

2. Enable built-in security features: Most modern browsers come with built-in security features such as sandboxing, phishing protection, and automatic updates. Make sure these features are enabled for maximum protection.

3. Use browser extensions: Consider installing security-focused browser extensions like ad blockers, script blockers, and password managers to enhance your online security.

4. Be cautious of downloads and websites: Avoid downloading files from untrusted sources and be wary of clicking on suspicious links or visiting unfamiliar websites to reduce the risk of malware infections.

5. Consider using a VPN: Using a virtual private network (VPN) can help encrypt your internet connection and protect your online privacy and security.

Regarding other sites and tests similar to BrowserAudit, you can explore platforms like Qualys BrowserCheck, Panopticlick, and SecurityHeaders.io, which offer tools to assess browser security and privacy settings. These sites can provide additional insights and help you further enhance your browser security.

If you have any specific questions or concerns about your browser security, feel free to ask for more detailed advice or recommendations.

fwiw, I ran browseraudit with firefox 123.0 & got 404 passed, 27 warning, 0 critical, 0 skipped. I had seen this site before but not deeply familiar with it. Not exactly sure what the point is with the "warnings" as I am not seeing any suggestions how-to-fix. I suppose if I had gotten a "critical" I'd be trying a little harder to understand it and fix. :coffee:

Also got 399 passed and 32 warnings in Chrome, but it contains a lot of B@ll$h1t for instance I get a warning for

Code:
    WebSocket connecting to wss://browseraudit.com with default-src 'self'

Which means default policy for WebSocket (data) connections that they are allowed from Browser Audit to itself (first-party). Seems okay to me (otherwise websites would brake).

I would have given a warning when my browser would have specified no default policy (meaning all is allowed), but next "default-src 'none' is blocked so all is okay IMO. Nothing to worry about


I have below user rules in AdGuard to limit risky third-party sources from TLD's I never visit and on all insecure websites.

Code:
! Block risky first-party content on HTTP websites everywhere, except on router console.
|HTTP://*$script,websocket,object,ping,denyallow=192.168.0.1

! Block risky third-party content not coming from Top Level Domains I normally visit (being Dutch).
|HTTPS://*$third-party,script,websocket,object,ping,subdocument,denyallow=nl|be|de|uk|eu|app|com|edu|io|net|org|tv

With uBO it is easier to add above TLD's as dynamic filter rules for easier control and exception setting (link to sticky on MT).
The AdGuard rules above are explained somewhere by @JanWilly but I don't have the link a hand (it is either a separate thread or somewhere in the sticky thread).
