Windows 7: IE 9 developer preview: 700,000 downloads so far

08 Apr 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
IE 9 developer preview: 700,000 downloads so far

IE 9 developer preview: 700,000 downloads so far; next update 'on track.'

Since Microsoft made available to testers the Internet Explorer (IE) 9 developer preview in mid-March, there have been about 700,000 downloads of it, according to a source close to the situation, who asked not to be identified.

IE General Manager Dean Hachamovitch, with whom I had a brief phone conversation on April 7, would not comment on the exact number of IE 9 downloads to date. But he did confirm there has been positive reception for Microsoft’s next release of IE — a release which will feature HTML 5 support, a new, speedier JavaScript engine and a host of other features.
