Microsoft revealed the Internet Explorer 9 beta has been downloaded over two million times in just two days.
Last week on the 15th, we released Internet Explorer 9 Beta. The initial reaction has been pretty overwhelming, and we are very humbled by the response our customers have had. In first two days, over 2 million people worldwide downloaded IE9 Beta. By comparison, when Internet Explorer 8 Beta launched in August 2008, we had 1.3 million downloads over the first five days.
We’ve seen 9 million visits and over 26 million page views to the Beauty of the Web site since its release last week, and our developer-focused IE Test Drive Site has had 4 million page views since last Wednesday.
