"Why just IE users, why not give the choice to everyone. I'm sure there are FF users who would like to switch to Chrome or Opera. and vice versa."
"Thats my point. The only users who will be hit are IE users. Keep it level and just show it to all users. "

Mack, you're *totally* not understanding why this is happening in the first place.
Microsoft abused their dominant OS position to get an stranglehold on the browser market - by bundling IE with every copy of Windows. They've been found guilty of having gained their browser market share unfairly by being the only option by default.
Other browsers have already (generally speaking) been installed by the user as a matter of choice, so there's no need to force them to do anything.
