Results showed that Internet Explorer (IE) users tested the worst with IE6 users at the bottom followed by IE8 users. The “normal” browsers, Chrome, FireFox, and Safari fell into the middle of the scores with very little difference between them. Surprisingly enough, people that used Opera scored on top with the highest scores on average.
These results show that IE users are more afraid to switch to more “technical” browsers because they are not properly “technology educated”.
