IE Users Angry Over Accusation Of Having Low IQ
This is a highly profane statement regarding IE users which have led them to a fury against the consulting company. Since the release of study results, IE users have threatened to file a law suit against the company and have sent hate mails to the company. The company performed more than 100,000 IQ tests and compiled the results on the bases of browser a user used.
According to the study, “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 their browsers. It is common knowledge that Internet Explorer Versions to 6.0 to 8.0 are highly incompatible with modern web standards”.
I still wonder how can one judge a person’s IQ based on his/her browser. However, the company didn’t retreat from the threats it received and is confident to face courts in case a lawsuit is filed against it.
Leonard Howard, company’s chief executive clarified the analysis stating, “If you use IE that doesn’t mean you have a low IQ, but according to results if you have a low IQ then there are high chances that you use Internet Explorer”.
The clarification doesn’t seem quite convincing. We’ll have to see What side the camel sits now.
