I've added a few more tests: noting whether there is a system tray,
whether the network map can be viewed, and whether a new ID can be
generated without losing the current open tabs. I've added these
because I think that they are important, but not available from the 3.x
series. I'm torn between the 2.x and 3.x series at the moment - 2.x
provides more information and functionality while 3.x is faster.
