Recently there was a story out there which suggested that Internet Explorer users had comparatively low IQ level when compared to other browser users.It appears that the news was a hoax.

Many media organizations  like BBC, CNN, Forbes etc.This so called research was first reported by a Canadian firm called ApTiquant. But when BBC readers posed questions against this story, BBC looked into the matter to find that the company website was recently setup, about a month ago. Thumbnail pics of the staff were found to be similar to a French company called Central Test, with the names changed.
