I was thinking that, how many people buy a PC and leave IE on it just because "They have no clue how to change it" or are happy "If its not broke, don't fix it".

That survey would be like saying "Only Haters don't use IE" because so many people just hate Microsoft. My home PC has both Firefox and IE, my work PC though I stick to IE over Firefox.

In that case judging by the bar chart back in 2006 you were dumber than an IE6 or IE7 user.

I think your browser choice comes down to personal preference and if you need your browser to do extra functions then you'll go with what's appropriate Firefox was probably the first Browser to offer extensions so it's cornered a large number of users that way.
IE will of course get more stick than the others and it will always have a higher proportion of idiots using it as it is the default browser for the default OS.

I have firefox blinkers on, have been using it since 0.7 I don't use IE because its slow to load - but then with the amount of extensions my firefox has, and the increase in program size, IE probably loads quicker. I just don't use it out of principle - it is much better than it used to be.
However for everyone complaining that firefox keeps changing its UI, have you compared IEs interface from 6 to 9?

MS offer a (supposedly) one-time prompt asking which browser they prefer. Beforehand users had to download and install the browser after looking for it. Ubuntu you have to go into the repository and look for it. How is that any different?
