If you have a Popup Blocker, disable it or the test will stall on Test 2. That's as far as I got anyway.....

Hm .. well .. despite the mass of JS strict warnings that the test generates, which undoubtedly slows it down and skews the results ...

... surely the pertinent question is - is your Javascript and DHTML lightweight and efficient enough to use on a production website?
