In other news the murder rate in 2006 was 75%

Some Chrome user.

It's because IE is the only browser without a MurderBlockPlus add-on.

Didn't Casey Anthony get off because cops only checked her IE browser history and didn't think to check Firefox, which she'd used to Google how to kill people?

Maybe there is a connection....

Don't read the comments, whatever you do.

The chart is about as serious as the study from 2011 that said that IE users had low intelligence, and that was shown to be a hoax.

Plus there's a disclaimer of sorts which says, "p.s. If you take this seriously, you are an idiot and you should go stick your head up some dark hole."

Seems legit.

IE market share. The murder rate is the dots and relates to the values on the other side.

All you really need is a browser that gets you to yahoo, youtube, and facebook. I don't see why civilians need all these high powered search tools, hacker websites, and penis-replacement "plug ins."

There is no way that many people were using IE. Case closed.

It's because the number of IE users I want to kill are a dwindling pool.

Internet Explorer has seen a recent rise in market share(largely due to Windows 8) and then the school shootings happened. Cooincidence? I think not.

You are sixteen, I take it, or do you just have a horrible memory?

anyway, the commenters on that article are the stupidest people I have ever seen on the internet, and that is saying something. "I know its a joke, but here are a few paragraphs about why it isnt right".....
