    No problems, have done that for a while, you can set your default browser from under the options on the browsers.

    I've had all three (IE, Firefox and Opera) installed on this PC for years and have never seen any problems due to their interacting in any way. That's even with trying out other browsers as well, such as K-Meleon, Off By One, etc.

    Personally I think it's fine to have as many browsers as you want, for multi-user environments at least there's something to cater to every user.
    For every browser, as with every software program, fine-tune all the program settings before allowing normal use. That's the tactic I use for my system.
    For computers in a domain environment, you can install and run almost any program from the folder located on the network drive.
