Biased why because I work on Firefox? I work on a lot of Open Source

Says who? The fact is that I'm one of those people who also want that
default changed, because I think that it is clearly not the best desktop
environment we can offer to our users (due to its design decisions).
Thinking and knowing what the best experience for your users is two
different things. I would bet money if you surveyed fedora users they would
pick Firefox and Gnome.
Personally I prefer data over knee jerk reactions because honestly this is
what I see going on. I don't see a demand from users that want a different
default I see developers who want to choose a different default based on
their own beliefs.
If your users want something other than Firefox then give it to them but I
don't see that argument being made.
