Remember this headline from mid 2011?
“Are Internet Explorer users dumb?”
Although this story
was picked up by major media outlets, it later turned out to be a bogus survey by a flimsy company.
We analyzed usage data of the www.calcudoku.org number puzzle website for the years 2010 and 2011, consisting of over 1 million solved puzzles, attempting to determine the numerical intelligence of users of Internet Explorer (IE), Firefox, and Chrome (insufficient data was available for users of other browsers.)
WHY I LOVE THIS: they saw the challenge through with the data they had laying around.
