it's have a test in http://www.pcflank.com/details.html,

-------------------
Browser privacy check

The test checked if your web browser reveals any private information while you visit Web sites. Usually such information is: the last site visited, your locale and who your Internet Service Provider is.


Attention! Your browser is not private. Privacy is 50%
While visiting web sites your browser sends information about previous sites you have visited.

Recommendation:
Install a personal firewall program. If you already have a firewall, adjust it to block this information.

Those tests require you not to be connected to the internet at all to pass them.
So, it is more conflicting to rely on it, but the test does have a point, we are not secure while online regardless of browser.
