    Your IQ is based on how your browser looks?

    Users of IE Version 8 have a higher IQ than those using IE version 9?

    I call shenanigans.

    IE9 (which anyone using IE who runs windows update on 7 or Vista will have) is not available for XP. Yes, this is the reason.

    Of course many factors play in, but most important is this:

    XP is still the OS with the marginally largest market share. This does not automatically speak in XPs favor (arguably it speaks against it) but what does so is the reason that XP still has this lead. Is it because people can't afford to spend the cash on a new OS(/computer with new OS)? No. It's because many huge corporations can't. More precisely it would not benefit them to do so (this is of course changing with XP support ending).

    Anyone with some money can go and buy a computer, but it generally takes some qualifications to get a job that makes use of one. People with those qualifications will have a higher IQ.


    Man, what a completely whacked out (yet very true) post I just wrote. Not sure the EoF can handle this.

    Probably being lazy.
    My thoughts exactly, or at least until I read the post below yours.

    Oh and the Firefox is incredibly inaccurate. We should be breaking the top of the chart, as our Dev's are at least smart enough to make sure our Flash doesnt break every 10 seconds when watching a video on youtube. Course I could probably say that the IE measurements are also Questionable in terms of accuracy.....

    IE breaks no matter what, so they should be dropping below the bottom Y axis of the chart into negatives. Heck iIE's been the most exploited browser since it was born. In fact, maybe it shouldn't even be measured

    No but I jest about that, well...except for the Chrome Breaking Flash every 10 seconds..*Seriously, ask my classmates.*

    Opera is accurate in terms of it's representation. I still don't like it very much though.

    Lol, all a high IQ proves is you're good at IQ tests.

    No, stupid high ones. If there was any truth to them I'd be one of the smartest people going and I'm not.

    I honestly have no clue how accurate they are. I've never taken one in my live.

    All I know is that typically when someone says that any form of a test shows how good they are at taking said test form, it means they get horrible scores on those tests.

    Again, "typically".

    Biggest problem is for the results to be accurate or fair everyone has to take a different test. I.e. you'd give a physicist a different test to a, oh say street cleaner of the same age. And that physicist would have to answer what would look like harder questions right (in some sections) to get the same score. Now you have to do the same sort of tuning by where someone lives and grows up etc. So you wouldn't give a 14 year old from a 1st world country the same test as a kid growing up in the majority of sub-Saharan Africa. Or even adults from the same places.

    Now when it comes to this study it wouldn't surprise me if they gave the same test to everyone. Those using opera are paying so probably better off (on average) than those using anything else, so they probably also have good educations, come from richer countries etc. Where a lot of those still using IE6 are probably using it because that's all the machines they can afford to access can handle. So you'll have a lot of 1st world professionals taking the same test as a lot of 3rd world labourers, where these populations will not have an even representation across browsers.

    EDIT: Not saying IE users aint idiots though.
