Dumb and Dumber

The report that claimed that IE users had the lowest IQ of those using browsers? Yes, it is a hoax.

To say that IE users are dumb shows a lack of intelligence by the author and a bias by the researcher. In all fairness, Chrom and Firefox are easier to use with more advanced features (simpler, more intuitive, with less thinking) than IE. But, like computer languages and operating systems, each user has his or her own preference. And, since IE is playing catch up with FireFox and Chrom, things will be more difficult for the IE user. If anything, it will require more intelligence to work with IE than FireFox or Chrom.

Consider IE to be the UNIX of browsers; and FireFox and Chrom to be the MacOS and Windows of browsers.
