Regardless of whatever merits IE 4 may or may not have, the only reason that anyone is currently using it is because it is the web browser that came on their computer.

Since they have never even bothered to download an update to IE, what kind of chance is there that they would ever download a non-IE browser?

Likewise, many of the IE 5, IE 5.5, and IE 6 browser users are using IE because it is the browser that came on their computer. In order for Netscape or Mozilla or any other browser to make a signifigant dent in the IE marketshare, bundling is going to have to be considered.
