Bogus update banner on Xfinity speedtest BETA page

Bogus update banner on Xfinity speedtest BETA page

On the Xfinity beta speedtest page - http://speedtestbeta.xfinity.com - a banner appears:  "We have detected that your browser is out of date.  Some items on this page may not display properly.  Please update your browser to improve your experience."  The words "update your browser" are linked to the site BROWSEHAPPY.COM, where a half-dozen browsers are shown.  That site  promotes alternative browsers.

 

While the site appears to be legit, Comcast should not allow its banner to mislead visitors into thinking that their browser needs updating.  The warning is bogus, verified by testing several browsers here - all of which are up-to-date. See for yourself.   In the past, this banner was not generated on the speedtest beta page. It doesn't appear at http://speedtest.xfinity.com.

Nothing on your linked page appears to deal with this type of issue, which I have reported via Xfinity CHAT.  Thanks.
