I was browsing through a site that post results of tests conducted on the algorithm of ciphers.

The site is

It shows XTEA-128 as "Most probably secure, but with an unreasonably large margin" in it's analysis.

How secure is XTEA and is it recommended to use XTEA as an option in encryption softwares that requires good amount of security (e.g. password manager programs) ?

Double check that I think it's branded as the following "Most probably secure against all statistical and algebraic attacks (4*PRFrounds ≤ rounds)"

That's about all I can help you with, never heard of that and I don't understand anything on that page. At all. Reading it was a total "what the fuck?!" moment for me.
