That’s 27 downloads every second.
Internet Explorer 9 released on March 14 and since then, has garnered over 2.35 million downloads, according to The Windows Team Blog. To purposefully put that in a mind boggling context: that’s 27 downloads every second, or over 240 downloads every 9 seconds.
“We want to thank everyone around the world for downloading IE9 and the enthusiastic reception. 2.3 million downloads in 24 hours is over double the 1 million downloads we saw of the IE9 Beta and four times that of the IE9 RC over the same time period.”
If you still haven’t, give Microsoft’s new browser a spin here (note: the installation requires a restart, so save your work.)
