Are Internet Explorer Users Dumber?

A new study from a self-described “psychometric consultant” and recruitment firm says that there’s no real difference in IQ between other browsers — but IE users are, well, below average. To study the “effects of cognitive ability on the choice of web browser”, they ran a free online IQ test to over 100,000 people, and plotted the average IQ scores based on the browser used.

Now clearly online IQ tests are kind of naff, and Internet Explorer is the default browser for Internet noobs everywhere, but yeah, there you go. [Aptiquant via Business Insider]
