It actually breaks down like this: If a shop is Linux-centric, they will likely prefer Firefox. If a shop is Microsoft-centric, they will likely prefer IE. Unless of course, they have an app that requires IE for some reason. Many shops simply don't care what browser you run.
I appreciate your input, but even if a company didn't care what I might load on their computer, it is theirs afterall, so as I see it I shouldn't be loading software foreign to what they put on it, on there. Unfortunately, at least with my experience, they had bloated out drives down so badly by turning to new programs and not deleting old ones, that no matter how little you bloated it down it was still a mess. At least mine was always the fastest operating one of the lot. I was just amazed to see so much garbage so many felt completely free to downlaod on somebody else's computer. I was more respectful for their computer than mine, but then others look at that situation the complete opposite.
