“The initial reaction has been pretty overwhelming, and we are very humbled by the response our customers have had,” said a Microsoft spokesperson. “In the first two days, over two million people worldwide downloaded IE9 Beta.”
Microsoft says that by comparison, when Internet Explorer 8 Beta launched in August 2008, it saw 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.”
But enough about what Microsoft thinks about it. Have you tried it yet?
