I use Internet Explorer in one way but use Firefox like a man! Oh yeah!

Here's a quick test you can take which the creators hope will be able to identify gender based on your browsing history.

The Mike on Ads blog has all the details of how it works.

And take the test.

Anyway, my results. In IE7:

Likelihood of you being FEMALE is 62%
Likelihood of you being MALE is 38%
In Firefox:
Likelihood of you being FEMALE is 21%
Likelihood of you being MALE is 79%
I use Firefox for browsing and IE7 for Google Reader and RBI intranet tools.

How does it do that? I'm only 5% man now...

Interesting site, especially about the behavioural data...
