I wish this were actually true, but sadly, it isn't very likely to be. I call bullshit.
I do believe most IE users are seriously lacking **in information technology skills**, but even in my worst anti-MS rant I have never equated that with stupidity as a general trait.
My doctor uses IE. My accountant uses IE. 99% of TCS' senior management probably uses it simply because it is the damn default and *they* didn't feel there was anything wrong with it.
In fact, I am coming to the opposite conclusion. I suspect that most IE users are of the kind (see previous para) who would not even *bother* to visit an IQ measurement site. And I am saddened that among Chrome/Opera/FF users, the more intelligent ones actually have the time to waste on trivial pursuits like "gee I wonder what's my IQ" (here's a hint: if you care, it's not high enough!)
And that doesn't mean IE is somehow being credited here. It just happens to be the "incumbent", as they say in politics.
