Interesting - Running speed tests on www.dslreports.com they have my
browser listed as:


Device / OS 	desktop / Windows Win10
Browser 	Android Chrome version: 54.0.2840.85


Where (or how) does DSLReports show what browser you are using?

Go down left side select "Speed Tests".
Select connection type and run tests.
After test is done select "Results"  and scroll down.

Just did it again and this time I get:


Device / OS 	desktop / Windows Win10
Browser 	Firefox version: 51.0

Interesting since my User Agent shows neither Chrome not Firefox.  It is:
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 SeaMonkey/2.48

I think they need a better 'sniffer'.

Hmmm!  It correctly got my system (desktop, Windows 7) on all tests.  On
the first test, it said I am using Safari 10.0.3.  On a rerun, it then
said I am using Chrome 56.0.2924.87.  Another rerun after disabiling my
Secret Agent extension, it then said I am using Android Chrome
58.0.3026.5.  (Is there a desktop version of Android Chrome?)

All this makes me doubt the accuracy of the DSLReports tools.

Running SeaMonkey 2.46 in Safe Mode (something I forget to mention in my
prior message), it said I am using Mobile Safari 9.0.

You're right.  Makes all the other information suspect

Has anybody bothered to tell dslreports.com?? I don't know if they
invite feedback.


Yes I did, and yes they do.

Thank you.
