The consulting firm AptiQuaint is suffering that most American of consequences for questioning the intelligence of Internet Explorer users -- it's being sued.

AptiQuaint gave web surfers an IQ test, then plotted their scores against the browser they used. According to their study, IE users had on average lower IQ's than people using Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.

But now, an Internet Explorer users group is threatening AptiQuaint with legal action unless it retracts its report.
