Internet Explorer (is) for Dummies - it's a scientific fact
Hey you! Yes you over there, using Internet Explorer! You're thick as pig manure, you are! It's true. What's that? Your barely developed noggin doesn't understand? Then come over here, you mono-browed dunderhead, and I'll explain it very slowly to you.
A bunch of Canadians thought there may be some correlation between people who resist change and stick to established browsers, and their IQ - a point the morally-superior Opera users have suspected for quite some time. So the Canadians, a firm called AptiQuant, set up a study - Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Browser Usage - to find out either way.
What did they discover?
"A significant number of individuals with a low score on the cognitive test were found to be using Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) versions 6.0 to 9.0. There was no significant difference in the IQ scores between individuals using Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Apple’s Safari; however, it was on an average higher than IE users.
Individuals using Opera, Camino and IE with Chrome Frame scored a little higher on an average than others. These data support the hypothesis that the IQ score and the choice of web browser are related."
If the test was only conducted on a handful of their mates, you'd quite rightly dispute the findings. Which is why 101,326 individual contributed to the result:
To summarise, then:
"The study showed a substantial relationship between an individual’s cognitive ability and their choice of web browser. From the test results, it is a clear indication that individuals on the lower side of the IQ scale tend to resist a change/upgrade of their browsers."
Time for the Bitterwallet team to upgrade from IE6, then. Although we don't see why we should.
