Internet Explorer 9 beta downloaded more than 20 million times

The downloads keep on coming for the Internet Explorer 9 beta. According to a new post on the Exploring IE blog, IE9 has now been downloaded more than 20 million times since its release in September 2010. It's also worth noting that IE9 market share has nearly reached half a percent -- not bad at all for a beta browser, especially one from Microsoft.

And it's not just end users who have been bullish on IE9. The post also states that more than 900 sites have taken advantage of Internet Explorer 9's Windows 7 shell integration features. With greatly improved JavaScript performance, hardware acceleration, and an increased focus on standards and compatibility, Microsoft is clearly determined to ensure the new browser is competitive with alternatives like Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.
