Firefox has a version for windows and is much easier than Midori.
They may have used Firefox on windows and it would be something they already know.
This will make it more easier for them to feel comfortable when trying Linux Mint for the 1st time.
Most other distros also use Firefox and if they have tested others before Linux Mint at least they will have some knowledge of it.

You can always add the repositories for Midori to your /sources.list
Then, you will always have the latest and most updated version of Midori.
