    Yeah...but what would Firefox be with AdBlock, NoScript and Ghostery running?
    I'm going to go ahead and say probably better than 90%.
    IE9 is also new, it will be a more telling test 6 months from now.

    Unfortunately I just assumed the common add ons were used but since it didn't stipulate in the article I left a comment in the form of a question. Hopefully I'll get an answer.
    Thanks, I hadn't thought of that.

    I run AdBlock, Ghostery, WOT and Better Privacy, I found NoScript to be a tedious pain in the ass to use and unnecessary with what add ons I run.

    BTW I found an addendum to your sig line:
    What I don't know would fill a warehouse, what I do know would fill an outhouse. :lol:
    (BTW that's not aimed at you, I just thought it was funny and your sig line reminded me of it.)

    Its actually MUCH SAFER to have scripts DISABLED as much as possible!
