It is to an extent (then again most power users do things different than most people) but, and I'll say this without bias or trying to push any agenda; if you do go into the venues where "serious computer people" hang out, e.g the newsgroups, nix/bsd forums, sysadmin/coding/stack exchange forums you will find that line of thought to be the general consensus.

Not necessarily, but I bet if there was some kind of survey done you would find that more of the top level (top level in computer-fu world) users probably use Firefox over any of the other mainstream options. You could take this as anecdotal evidence, but I can wholeheartedly say that in those venues I just listed, almost nobody runs Chrome or anything else as their daily driver browser, it's the fox or fox derivatives like Palemoon/Waterfox/Tor.
