Brain Fail: Study Suggests Internet Explorer Users Are Dumb

*UPDATE*

Internet Explorer User’s Are Dumb!

In a blog today on a fake company’s website, the perpetrator of the scam admitted the whole thing was a put-on.

“There is no company called AptiQuant, and no such survey was ever done,” the blog read. “This was all meant to be a lighthearted joke.”

But Still Go Ahead And Read This Article,Rib Tickling!

Still using Internet Explorer? Well, I’ve got to hand it to you: It takes guts in today’s tech climate. Looking around the webs, it seems the Microsoft browser doesn’t get a whole lot of love or respect. As if to punctuate the sentiment, results from an online IQ test were released recently, and it suggests that IE users aren’t exactly the sharpest crayons in the box.

Aptiquant — a consulting firm in the business of creating examinations tools for hiring purposes — posted the test on its website. The firm went through the results of more than 100,000 participants, and discovered that people who visited using IE scored the worst — below average, in fact. Meanwhile, visitors with Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera had pretty comparable IQs (with Opera users winning out by a smidge).

Back in 2006, the results looked more even.
