Firefox IS a much more "compliant" browser than IE. IE has lots of quirks and non-standard interpretations of the HTML standards. Firefox will render pages as they were intended far more times than IE.
Additionally, the plugins available for Firefox are so numerous. Things like Firebug, SEOQuake, etc. make lives of developers, SEOs, etc. so much better. Those types of plugins are just not available in the same numbers for IE.
I use both. I use primarily IE... but when I need some "special" functionality I use Firefox + a plugin. If a site is not rendering properly in IE, I will also use Firefox.
