Web App Security Testing With Browsers
If you’re testing in a limited environment, you can use this guide to see how to do security testing right from your browser.
Can you perform web application security testing just using a browser?

This guide looks at web application security testing from such a locked down scenario. The goal is to cover as many security test cases as possible from a browser. Even though it’s not possible to perform all web application related security test cases from browsers, some good coverage can be guaranteed with the help of the same.
