Internet Explorer 9 downloads top 2.3 million first day Microsoft has announced today that Internet Explorer 9 was downloaded 2.35 million times between its Monday night launch and Tuesday night, or the equivalent of 27 downloads per second.
The company saw 1 million downloads of the first beta and a similar number for the RC, which launched at the end of February.

Microsoft has transformed IE9, adding a URL/Search bar like Chrome, and going or a "minimalist" look, leaving more room for actual browsing.

IE9 users will also be able to pin sites and bookmarks to the Windows taskbar, use a built-in download manager (for the first time ever) and see hardware acceleration for HTML5 video.

ActiveX filtering and other security features have been added, as well.

You can download IE9 here at AfterDawn: Internet Explorer 9 (all versions available)
