This dialog was a pyrrus victory for firefox, imho.

We have in mdv : 
epiphany, midori, firefox, chrome, orora, elinks, konqueror, galeon,
links, w3m, lynx, amaya, dillo, hv3, moblin-web-browser.
And we can add opera, and surely some various enlightenment browsers 

When we see how people reacted to the idea of survey, you think it is a
good idea to ask "please choose between 15 browsers" each time a new
user log in ? Should we represent the dialog if a new browser appear ?

Would you find this "democratic" to just choose 5 of them ? 

So I say no to this idea. Asking useless questions just add burden to
the user. People that have a preferred browser know how to install it,
those that don't do not care enough.
