My Two Cents: I hope these folks are kidding. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is the most used, then Safari , Firefox, and last Google Chrome. We test our web products on all 4. Probably the IQ results are higher for the non Microsoft’s Internet Explorer because the last 3 are more buggy. So you have to have a higher IQ to use them. Now I am kidding.
I personally like the new IE 9, and I have always like Safari. A lot of IT people use Firefox and sware by it. Google Chrome is still to buggy for me.
