Why would a user change from one browser to another?
Leaving aside webmasters and other tech-savvy folk, and addressing average users:
In the late 1990s people changed from Netscape to IE because Netscape became awful.
In the mid 2000s some changed from IE to Firefox because of security concerns.
In the early 2010s some switched to Chrome because they were exposed to the heavy advertising and tend to trust anything from Google.
I have been surprised at the number of ordinary users I know personally who switched to Chrome, that Kool-Aid must be heavily laced with the mindbending ingredient.
I'm not saying it's a bad broser, I'm just trying to answer the question.
