I am happy to say I have been for many, many years an Opera user. I am not sure if that means anything of value... :P

The study gave web surfers an IQ test, then plotted their scores against the browser they used.

IE surfers were found to have an average IQ lower than people using Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Users of Camino and Opera rated highest.

Lol! Bogus reporting, I expected much better from the BBC to authenticate their news articles before publishing...

That was a troll that quoted a fake study.

Actually, a careful look at the graphs and the study would have made it pretty clear the whole thing was a hoax. Yet media outlets such as the BBC, NPR, The Atlantic, The Huffington Post, the Daily Mail, CTVNews.ca, CNN.com and others ran with the study’s findings.

“Though the study isn’t up to scientific standards and IQ is hardly a perfect measure of intelligence (especially on Internet quizzes), the results are too juicy not to pick apart,” read The Atlantic’s report.

I happen to like IE 9 - minimalistic cc_detective.gif

lol..you do know it's embedded throughout the os don't you? The settings and activex security are also a nightmare..

Oh yeah..I don't even think they use multithreading on most of it, the UI locks down in a lot of common usage scenarios like page loading..the most annoying aspect, and still in 9..

I use FF6 and run portable versions of others for dev
