Microsoft is excited to let all their fans know that Internet Explorer 9 was downloaded 2.3 million times in the last 24 hours. As Ryan Gavin writes, “That is over 27 downloads every second, or over 240 downloads every 9 seconds.”
Has Microsoft learned its lessons about building a better browser? It doesn’t take long with Internet Explorer 9 beta to see that they have. Right now the beta is showing outstanding web render speed (thanks to GPU acceleration) plus very good standards compliance. And it’s getting better with every revision.
