Default Will Microsoft ever learn?

The Register's article here:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/10...wser_crituque/

IE 9 scores 4 out of 4

IE 8 scores 3 out of 4

Firefox and Chrome (2 and 2.5 respectively)

Opera (not detected)

Microsoft's site simply detects the user agent of your browser and therefore, it is useless.

Download a user agent addon like this one (for example: firefox)(https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...user-agent-rg/), change the user agent and visit the site and watch your ratings change!



Too bad that the site simply uses only a user agent to detect the browser and gives scores based on that.
