Another 'meaningful' survey

Showing that you can prove just about anything with statistics. This survey links IQ with your choice of Internet browser

Users of Internet Explorer apparently have the lowest average IQ. What makes me think that if Microsoft undertook the survey the results would be very different?

Sounds like bollocks to me. I used plenty of different browsers. I currently use IE9 becuase I can't be arsed to sod about changing settings. A browser is a tool, IE9 does more or less what I want, I don't need whistles and bells, I need an internet browser. Why change it?

I suspect you're right though, if the survey were conducted by MS the results would be different.

(I suspect I must be too stupid to understand )

Users of IE6 have the lowest IQ of the lot, which makes me think the study has some validity.

Anyone using IE6 today is, how shall I phrase it politely ...

The same would apply for any outdated software
