These numbers have nothing to do with the education or the IQ of the users of each country...

Curiously enough, I (an American) never thought you were trying to imply anything about IQ, until you said you weren't. :-)

Anyway, the OneStat numbers are quite interesting, putting the USA's usage of Internet Explorer at a lower rate than the rest of the world. The XiTi numbers appear to be different (at least as regards the UK), so they are not really comparable.

When more people own computers, one might think that more people who are less computer-savvy will be using computers, and thus using the internet. It would be interesting to see if there's any correlation between percentage of households that use a computer, and percentage of computer users that use a non-IE browser.

Not even all households that have computers have internet access.
