Hmm... It doesn't look like the graphics match the label "Centrist".

I didn't think the graphics looked all that off provided you're willing to assume that a 15 point range on both sides of 50 for each axis constitutes a centrist.

Of course, I don't know for sure that that's their definition, but that's what it looks like.

Anyway, it's pretty close to my perceptions of things--I'm farther to the right on economic issues than Democrats seem to be and definitely further to the left than Republicans on social/environmental issues.

On my screen it puts you in the "Socialist" part of the first screen, down in the lower right corner. Does it show up as "Centrist" to you?

It does show up as centrist under freebsd and xp. I should check it on my Mac.

On Safari, it puts you in the "Socialist" area, but in Firefox, it puts you in the "Centrist" area. Very weird.

Actually it makes sense now. Firefox accurately interprets Javascript/DHTML. Safari is based on Khtml and thus doesn't (just like Konqueror).

Safari's a good browser, but as a web developer I've often wished that they'd chosen gecko for their rendering engine instead.
