It has been revealed by Microsoft that there has been ten million downloads so far of Internet Explorer 9 since it was first released. This followed the Beta getting downloaded two million times in just the first two days of launch.
As with many Beta downloads there have been problems reported from users with IE9. Microsoft also revealed that research showed that users only use twelve features found in a browser regularly. This led to the less cluttered feel to the IE9 interface, and has a similar look of the Windows 7 OS where users see a page’s content first.
The company said “We are particularly excited about developer reaction and feedback to IE9 Beta, with 37 million pages views of our Test Drive site and 13,000 pieces of feedback submitted,” and also said that IE9 is “on track to be our fastest adopted browser ever.”
