IE9 release date confirmed by Microsoft

By Updated on

Web browsers have been in the news a lot lately whether it’s the upcoming Firefox 4, or Google’s Chrome. All the companies which supply them are trying to get the biggest market share by being the fastest, or have the best features.

Microsoft first launched the beta for Internet Explorer last September and had over two million downloads in just two days, which rose to an astonishing eleven million in only eighteen days. Microsoft has announced that the IE9 release date will be March 14, which is the final version and not the RC download, according to an article over at TechRadar by Kate Solomon.

The download is set to begin at 9pm pacific time, so in the UK downloads will actually start on the 15th. Because of the numbers with the beta, the amount that actually download the final version could be a lot higher.

Microsoft has had the candidate form out for a few weeks now, but the company has said there is more to come. Senior director of Internet Explorer business and marketing – Ryan Gavin – said in a blog post “We still have a few surprises left. There are a lot of new amazing things to share.”
