In just 24 hours of Internet Explorer 9 being released, people around the world have already downloaded 2.35 million times, according to Microsoft. That number may seem like IE9 had a great jump start, but just until you compare it to the 8 million times that Firefox 3 was downloaded in its first day of being released, back in 2008. However it still a solid number considering that now we have more players on the table (e.g. Google Chrome), taking a cut in the browser share market and millions of new Web users with more choices.
If you still haven’t decide to download and switch or if you just want to learn what is news in IE9, here is a great video collection from the Website Channel9 that will give you a good walk through for the new features of this new Web browser.
