The real solution is to use a browser with no known vulnerability (and
that's better if it didn't have a lot in the past), not to try to hide
what you are using.

That's not always possible. Sometimes, changing the browser is a project
that will take months to complete (think: corporation with thousands of
PCs at hundreds of sites - it takes time to create the business case, get
funding, build/test the auto install package, retrain the end users,
etc.). In the period of exposure, any little bit helps (albeit,
minimally). This small change can probably be done in a couple of weeks
with no impact to the user.
