With IE9 finally out of beta, Microsoft has been quick to tell the world why it should plump for its browser over a growing number of sleek rivals. And it seems a fair chunk have been listening, with 2.35 million downloads in the first 24 hours.
In a official blog post, the Big M said that was the equivalent to 27 downloads a second. Impressive, especially as last year’s IE9 beta only managed one million on its first day.
But as Mozilla has been quick to point out, its Firefox 3 still holds the world record for fastest browser downloads, with a whacking 8 million on day one back in 2008. It seems Microsoft still has some way to go to match its big time rival.
