[/quote]A key difference here is though that I'm the one who (supposedly) claimed that Chrome users are smarter [blink][/quote]

So it is true you did not actually claim that Chrome users are smarter.

To settle this again (?), the conclusions were that Chrome users were better
with numbers (have "higher numerical intelligence"), on average, than Firefox (2nd) and IE users (3rd).

The differences were found to be statistically significant, i.e. unlikely to have occurred by chance.

Also from the conclusion of the paper: "Note that it does not follow that using Chrome
makes you smarter, for example (correlation does not imply causation)."


In the post above, I was trying to be funny by implying that (1) I'm not using Chrome, so (2) I must be stupid,
but (3) I was the one claiming that Chrome users were smarter in the first place (?!) :-)
