UX designers at Mozilla did a lot of research on this very thing with Firefox. I don't have all of the links close at hand, but here's a couple of the many blog posts that came out of this work:

Alex Faaborg's blog provides lots of interesting insights into the Firefox development process from the perspective of user experience.
