Survey Claims IE Users Are Dumb

A company named AptiQuant offers free IQ tests. After 100,000 people took them up on the offer, AptiQuant compared the scores to the browser from which the test was taken. Turns out IE users are dumber than Safari, FireFox or Chrome fans. On the other hand, IE users who installed Chrome Frame scored quite well.

On theory is it takes a certain amount of brainpower to choose and then install an alternative browser.

What is your browser and was it a smart decision? You tell me at [email protected]
