Which browser, according to a new study, is preferred among people with low IQs?


by / July 29, 2011

Answer: Internet Explorer 6

According to The Atlantic Wire, "Vancouver-based AptiQuant's research was elegantly straightforward: it posted an IQ test on its website and looked at the IQ score and web browser of 101,326 people who completed the test."

While by no means scientific, AptiQuant's test did show that those who performed poorly on the test tended to use IE6. Those who scored the highest tended to use Opera.
