The Internet Proficiency Test

Do you think you know your way around the internet pretty well? UsVsTh3m has a quiz that will test your internet savvy, netiquette, and all-around web coolness. Having spent the majority of my waking hours on the internet for the past decade, I thought I might do pretty well on this quiz. Here’s my result.

I would have been totally embarrassed if I had scored any lower. Take the Internet Proficiency Test and let us know how you scored. Then send it to your less-proficient friends and relatives. -via b3ta

So I'm wondering just what the point was of this. I, too, am Tim Bernes-Lee the inventor of the internet with a score of 100%. And let's be honest here- I know my way around ok but I'm not really an internet goddess or geek or anything even close.

Seeing the top score compares the taker to Tim Bernes-Lee, I was expecting questions on different protocols and standards. But after opening the quiz in a telnet session without a http reference, I started to think it was more of a quiz on how to be or not be a jerk on the internet, with some arbitrary scoring. Then on second thought, I opened it in a real browser with a JS console and took the real proficiency test.
