Ordinary PC users use what was supplied with their PC.  You have to be
a relatively technically aware user, these days, to use alternative 
browsers.  (Even then, if you are using an office PC, your IT department
may well not allow you to install one, and are even less likely to allow
you to install a plugin unless you have a specific business need to
access a site.)

You can tell the dominance of IE by the number of sites that break with
alternative browsers.  Businesses have decided that IE is the only browser
that they need to support (and that includes a hypothetical reference
browser that correctly implements HTML).
