For my home pc use, which is a Windows 7 pro 64 bit machine I put together, I tend to use Firefox the most, as it seems a bit faster than Chrome and IE. I have to admit though though, between the three, Chrome seems to be a bit more "stable". I do like that IE seems improved, say least to me, as far as speed goes, but of the three it seems to be the least "stable". At work, and I work for a municipal government in a non IT position, we use Windows 7 enterprise 64 bit, it's all IE. That being said, we are prohibited from using the internet for non work related matters.
I use Chrome on my main computer and Firefox on my netbook. Chrome takes way too much out of my smaller computer. I haven't used IE in almost ten years unless it's at a library or at my parents' house. I don't know of anyone that voluntarily uses it either. At my work, we use Chrome.
Where I work, IE7 is the browser of choice on a XP based system. I think they force us to use it there because it makes browsing the net incredibly frustrating. Thus, they expect us to browse the net less. I think the IT dept. is run by monkeys.
I'm pretty sure most IT departments are run by monkeys since they always have no concept of how the real world vs a lab is.

I love Chrome and Firefox
People... a business will use IE because it is easy to apply group policies. Harder with other browsers. I find Opera most stable myself. I crash Chrome a lot and Firefox eats my RAM too readily (eventually leading to a crash). I basically never exit Opera.
ie is the most common in work places because work places dont really care. they a bunch of windows machines and just get them going with their company software and thats it. and they probably want you on the internet in the first place much less downloading and installing a different browser . IE the most used internet browser to download and install other browsers
