    Having dealt with Opera, I am wondering about this statistic. I would have thought Opera users would have wound up on the other end of the scale.

    I suspect that the reality is that most users grew up with IE and do not want to learn or adjust to a new browser. I use 3 different browsers including IE9 so where does that put my intelligence?

    Been having trouble with Chrome lately keeping me on certain sites after multiple entries including USMB. Still have not figured the problem out. Ran virus checks, rebooted the Hughes net but I suspect it is my Norton causing the problem. Background scans by Norton were freezing the computer. I know when it runs out I will be changing to some other virus protection.

    It was an unscientific poll and they stated as much. I posted it because I though it was funny.

    Norton is a massive resource drain on your computer. Get rid of it.

    Use this, it's free, it doesn't slow down your computer, it ranks at the top with the best anti-virus programs out there, and you never know it's there...
