Microsoft Sends Mozilla A Cupcake

Orders more wholesale.

Continuing its sweet tradition, the software giant has sent a gift to Mozilla Corporation, congratulating them on the Firefox 6 release. What is that, you ask? A delicious cupcake.

Unfortunately for Mozilla, Microsoft has decided not to send a full sized cake, which would’ve been sent prior the rapid release cycle introduction. Still, a nice gesture nonetheless.

Web Browsers IQ Study Is A Hoax

Web Browsers IQ Study Is A Hoax

IE users rejoice.

Earlier this week, we reported about the recent study which claims that IE users tend to have a lower IQ when compared to other web browser users. Turns out, it was a hoax all along.

According to BBC, the web site that published results was set up just weeks before official announcement and used staff images copied from Central Test, a French company specializing in research.

Although ApTiquant has already changed some of its staff member names, they did that few days too late.
