Windows 7: Internet Explorer Users are More Stupid Than Others: Study

Thanks for the vids. Also thanks for the link. At least they provide an explanation:
"I just want to make it clear that the report released by my company did not suggest that if you use IE that means you have a low IQ, but what it really says is that if you have a low IQ then there are high chances that you use Internet Explorer," CEO Leonard Howard said.

So as a user of IE exclusively, I feel so much better.

You didn't read through this entire thread. I mentioned what I and my family use in response to the 2nd poster which is Firefox. Chrome is ok, but the lack of a bookmark sidebar irritates me so I don't really use it much. I don't like Opera's layout. IE, even the latest version gets attacked way more than the other browsers.

The survey gave people an IQ test which measures intelligence not stupidity.
If you smoke you are stupid in regard to smoking but having a high IQ does not stop you doing stupid things.
Albert Einstein was a smoker despite his Doctor's advice.

If anybody is still using Internet Explorer 6 or IE 7 from personnel preference they have to be ignorant of better alternatives or they are either masochistic or stupid.

Or working on a corporate machine with IE as the browser standard for business reasons. I think it's interesting that the survey generated such a response, but browsers have almost the same religious fanaticism that other technologies imbue, which of course is not a good thing.

which is why as an Opera user with the brain the size of a small planet I added the clause " from personal preference"
