Not really in regards to google...

The problem with Google is that it is pretty much the default search engine on Mozilla Based browsers (search from URL bar). Whereas IE defaults to MSN search.

This is likely in itself that woudl skew results towards a mozilla bias. However, one can also argue that this shoudl give a greater than 5% share.
