Browser Security

For those of you who might be curious about how much stuff people can find out about you online, DNSStuff has a little page that will give you information about your computer.

It's really easy to pick up not only your computer's IP address, but also your operating system, the Web browser you are running, and other things.

If you're really interested in security, try loading the page in one browser (such as Mozilla Firefox) and then try it again in another browser (such as Internet Explorer) and you'll see that you are usually giving out more information (and thusly, less secure) by using Internet Explorer.

Pretty neat little Web based tool - it doesn't require any downloading.
