I get between 30% and 40% on mine, based on quite a decent visitors pool. It
once peaked at about 45% for Firefox, which outranked IE. Then again, a
noticeable proportion of WP bloggers tends to visit the site and very few of
them are willing to tolerate the layout of their own site/s in IE.

In other sites, whose theme is completely different, Firefox can be a rarity
