Using Chrome Version 24.0.1312.57 (No extensions loaded)

First try:

Error: Server Error

The server encountered an error and could not complete your request.
If the problem persists, please report your problem and mention this error message and the query that caused it.

Waited a few minutes, only 1 fail:

FAIL toStaticHTML API

Just what does "put that domain in my restricted zone" have to do with the security test?

I would sure hope that a domain placed in a restricted zone is blocked.

I guess we should assume you are an IE user?

A blank white screen is indicative of an issue on the server end like a page timing out, server scripting error or other issue.

Did you expect something else to happen?

No I guess the security of the restricted zone shows when you put that site in it! (It tries to do things that arent kosher (As a test))

Like what?

Microsoft says this about restricted sites: (Win 7, IE8)

Quote:
Restricted sites

The level of security set for Restricted sites is applied to sites that might potentially damage your computer or your information. Adding sites to the Restricted zone does not block them, but it prevents them from using scripting or any active content. The security level for Restricted sites is set to High and can't be changed.
