I agree,
Besides, these scores do not reflect how well a browser does in everyday use.
Dillo and Links2 wouldn't even score, and they're very useful browsers.
Also, it would be interesting to see if other online tests offer further information.

Looking at its scoresheet, there are many of the html5 tests you do not want your browser to "pass". Very invasive, or very insecure.

For full-featured browsers, changing your settings will change the score. If nothing's been changed, at higher scores the difference reflects more what setting the browser ships with than what it's capable of doing. 500 is too high.

As much as you possibly can, leave Data Restriction Monitor off, and don't use the sites that insist on it.

The testing version of Qupzilla 2.2.0 with QtWebEngine version 5.9.2 does even better

acid3 100/100 and html5 517/555 including DRM support.

Web search indicates that GnuPG enforces private ownership of the folder and some files for security reasons:

According to all documentation I could find, and animated conversation with those directly involved with the gnupg project, the commands needed are as follows:
Code: [Select]
Not a typo. Seriously, "do nothing" was the only answer offered, and it was repeatedly reiterated. And yes, that's when transition from 1.4/2.0 to "modern" 2.1/2.2 was included.

I don't buy it, either. But just copy ~/.gnupg over and see if it "just works". When it doesn't, you can try posting back. The gpg and libgcrypt versions reported by gpg --version might help, but I doubt it.

It's very seriously scary to have so much data locked in for so many users with so little documentation available, most of what's there wrong, and most of all so little sense, or, frankly, ability exhibited by the GnuPG project. None of this would have become an issue at all if they knew what versioning or planning are at all, or at least had a vague idea of what "upgrade path" might mean.

Hope it works as advertised for you, because after that there is only straight-up guesswork and trial-and-error. Nothing else is available.

Meanwhile, another old laptop no longer works due to VGA chipset problems... Gpg key file  is still at its hard disk,
copied the old ~/.gnupg/ folder to new home on vl7.2 std machine,
then

====================================
    gpg -ao mypub.key --export <MY_KEY_ID>
    gpg -ao myprivate.key --export-secret-keys <MY_KEY_ID>
=====================================

Then imported them on the new system with:
----------------------
gpg --import myprivate.key
gpg --import mypub.key
---------------------------

end ed up no private keys,

Now I mount the old disk  to this vl7.2 std machines, what's correct commands to import all keys(public and private) from directory ~/.gnupg/?

No.
That would be dangerous and is almost guaranteed to render that 7.1 box unbootable.  The upgrade will only work within the same vector version.
