Top site - News Corp - similar story to BAe with a dip in the rankings in April due to a big increase in functional errors found. All bar 1 resolved and and a big improvement in Priority "A" accessibility bringing them to the top of the heap.

Bottom site - Microsoft - After languishing near the bottom for a few months Microsoft now find themselves sitting in last place. Some might find it surprising that the biggest software company, that's making lots of noise about moving applications to the Web, should get it so wrong. The long suffering amongst us might be totally nonplussed by the result. Lots of errors and 97% of their pages failing basic Accessibility standards makes for a deserved place at the bottom.

J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.
