When you take into consideration the market share of each browser
and the relative availability of the browsers (IE is always shipped with windows and so on)...this whole study is kind of put into perspective.

The more the number of people using the browser, the better the chance that the average user IQ goes down.

or since IE is in the default installation: the lower the IQ the less likely you'll have the *brilliant* idea of installing something better
