On Monday night Microsoft released the final version of their latest web browser, Internet Explorer 9, and today Microsoft is reporting that it was downloaded 2.35 million times in the first 24 hours – which comes out to 27 times per second!
Some of you may have been just like me and grabbed the download as soon as it was available in those first 24 hours, others may have waited calmly until the next day and some have not yet downloaded the final bits.

By the way – Windows XP users are out of luck on this one as IE9 is not compatible with that operating system. Isn’t it time to upgrade from Windows XP anyway?
