IE9 at over 1 Million Downloads and Counting, Download Platform Preview 2

There have been in excess of one million downloads of Internet Explorer 9 since the first Preview was introduced to the public in mid-March 2010. The number, confirmed by a Microsoft spokesperson, is indicative of the huge interest in the next iteration of Internet Explorer, the successor of IE8. Seven weeks after the release of Platform Preview 1, Build 1.9.7.7.45.6019, and a week earlier than initially promised, Microsoft made available for download IE9 Platform Preview 2 Build 1.9.7.7.66.6000, which is currently up for grabs via the IE Test Drive website.

According to the Redmond company, Internet Explorer 9 had reached the one-million-download milestone while in Platform Preview 1 stage. This is jaw dropping, considering that IE9 has been far from a fully fledged browser until now. And downloads are bound to pile up even more, now that the next versions of IE have evolved to Platform Preview 2, bringing to the table an array of enhancements and new features.

I was looking at this the other day and wondering whether to download or not, so far I've not done it I'll probably wait until it comes out of beta.

Nice one. But there is a lot work to do to compete with Chrome and Firefox.

Firefox has been having a lot of problems lately(Had to roll back to 3.5.9),but I don't know if that is sufficient to go back to Explorer (which I only leave on my machine because some things insist on opening it). Being in Beta it may have more than it's share of security problems (I.E. still does,what do you think all those security updates ARE FOR ??)

I hope IE9 will support web workers, web sockets, and webgl (canvas) when it releases, otherwise I'm sticking with Chrome. I don't think they will support WebGL because the backend (OpenGL) competes with DirectX.

One thing IE has over Chrome right now is hardware-accelerated rendering. Just try viewing something like this: http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Pe...s/Default.html in any other browser other than IE9.

It seems to work fine in Opera 10.53.
