IE Users Angry Over Accusation Of Having Low IQ

AptiQuant is the research firm behind the survey from which they inferred that Internet Explorer users are usually dumb and have low IQ levels when compared to Chrome, Mozilla or Safari users.

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.
