What’s in your Wallet? Depends on your Browser.

What's in your wallet? Less if you use Firefox or IE and more if you use Chrome. Here from J-Walk Blog are interest rates for a car loan from Capital One if you use IE.

I found something similar and the Consumerist also reports similar results. 

Price discrimination makes sense if Chrome users are better searchers, as seems likely. I suspect, however, that it is price experimentation and the Chrome<IE effect is being reported more often than the reverse.  I cleared cookies and tried a couple of times and although rates varied the lowest rate was still with Chrome.  I gave up after a few tries, however.
