Browserscope is tackling the tool at the front of the stack – the browser itself – to give end users a faster, richer, and more secure web experience. Testing done in the lab is always suspect, and oftentimes not reproducible, so Browserscope puts its tests and its results out in the wild for crowd-sourcing. This talk will present some of the trending analysis and findings from Browserscope’s first few months of data collection as well as some case study information about the new Security test suite..
