This site, called Browser Tune 98, "thoroughly and safely tests close to 300 separate browser features and functions from the bedrock basics up to Dynamic HTML, Cascading Style Sheets, multimedia, streaming audio and video, Java, ActiveX/OCX, scripting, push channels, applications-and desktop-integration, virus protection, data binding, security and more."
If you are using the latest version of Internet Explorer or Netscape then everything should work fine so you don't really need most of these tests, but WebSkulker suggests that you go through them anyway as en education into all the capabilities that web browsers have nowadays. Some of the tests will explain various security settings that you can change in your browser, and help you decide how to set them.
WebSkulker has been using the old Wintune program from Windows Magazine for years to analyze the performance of his PC's. They have a new version that we suggest you run to see how your motherboard, CPU, memory, video card, and hard drive compare to other brands and models. If you are using a recent version of Internet Explorer, you can run these tests directly from your web browser without needing to download or install any software. Just click on the first link above. If you are using the AOL software, that is really Internet Explorer so these tests might work, but we haven't tried it.
If you are using Netscape, or if the AOL browser won't run the tests, then click on the first link and read the documentation, then use the second link to download the free application that will test your PC. Just install it and run it like any other downloaded program.
buying an eBook machine, it's way too expensive. Instead,
download a free eBook simulator for the PC called the eRocket and you
can read books on your PC screen. Click here for a description
and pointers to the download site:
