June was another good month for Internet Explorer 9 and Windows 7. IE9 has now become the most popular modern browser on Windows 7 in the US. IE9 is now just second overall in the US behind IE8 with 21.8% usage share as of the last day of June. Worldwide, IE9 usage share on Windows 7 is exiting the month with 17.0% usage share for June.
Better, together. We designed IE9 to make your favorite sites better. A key piece of that is getting sites out of the browser box and letting them integrate right into your Windows 7 taskbar just like any of your favorite apps. WordPress, which has over 20 million sites, recently took advantage of some of these unique capabilities to enable any of these millions of sites to be pinned right to your Windows 7 taskbar and instantly have a Jump List for all recent posts. One of the blogs that caught our eye was Crazy4ComicCon, an enthusiastic ode to Comic-Con maintained by Tony Kim.
Pinning C4CC to your Windows 7 taskbar gives you instant access to the site, and a right-click will bring up the five most recent posts.
As you can see Tony is incredibly passionate about comic books, Comic-Con, his blog and “the tribe.” He launched his blog about a year ago as a means to “make the world a little smaller.” If you’re a fan of comics and want to learn more about the ins-and-outs of Comic-Con, definitely check-out Tony’s blog by pinning it to your Windows 7 taskbar. And if you are a reader any of any of the 20 million blogs or news sites from WordPress, like TechCrunch – start pinning!
Go Scandinavia! The positive momentum in moving the world to a modern browser continues this month with IE6 and IE7 dropping a combined 0.8% share worldwide for the month of June. Our website ie6countdown.com continues to get great traffic, and this month we launched our Champions page to celebrate those major countries that have dropped below 1% usage share of IE6. The most recent country to join the ranks of these Champions is Sweden, where the Stockholm Webmonkeys got together on June 21st and celebrated IE6 dropping below 1% in Sweden.
We also have expanded our IE6 Countdown efforts with two more global sites going live this month. China which represents the largest portion of IE6 share worldwide has launched a local site, and our team in Latin America has also released a local version of IE6 Countdown to help get people there to move to a modern browser.

It's really amazing post. I like to read such blog. Thanks for sharing this one.
Just stumbled across your blog and was instantly amazed with all the useful information that is on it..I will keep it in mind, thanks for sharing the information, looking forward for more posts. http://www.nulleurocent.de
I can't use IE9 - we're running XP, I and use IE8 - we're running IE7, although I think the problems we might have with IE8 are solved by compatibility mode. Maybe Microsoft could come out with a FIREFOX compatibility mode, so we could still use all the active-x controls we have (hence we can't use Firefox now either). Doesn't IE9 have compatibility mode?
btw, Firefox and Chrome sucks too!!!
I tried IE9 and it just doesn't seem to be as good as IE8. Sure there are some more features and perhaps it's a little faster, but the toolbar that has File, Edit, View, Favs., Tools and Help just isn't the same. I don't like it. I reinstalled IE8 and I havn't been frustrated with it. When I tried IE9, I got so damn frustrated that I broke my keyboard. I hope that when you come out with IE10 it isn't like IE9. I wont use it either. I'll stick with IE8.
Chrome is faster without any plugins... which takes lot of memory...
We are good! Greetings from Finland! ;)
Chrome has spell check and cloud sync for stuff. That is why I use chrome these days.
though i am a microsoft fan coy i have to say i will stick with chrome for good.IE does not meet the request of todays web experience.And as usual microsoft keeps being innovative without solving current bugs
My humble request to Microsoft, please improve the drawbacks that IE9 has, as mentioned in those above comments, it looks nice and beautiful in its look but not in the performance and capability, a lot of issues. Talking about IE10 without even bothering to fix problems associated with IE9 cannot be a great idea of this great company. When I am left with no choice but to use firefox and chrome due to issues with on the websites I use regularly on IE9, I feel really bad. I guess not just me but anyone who loves IE. Please work to solve those issues before releasing IE10 and start talking about IE11 while the problem from IE9 would still be in the newer versions.
I currently develop some site using MVC 3. At first I started with a kind of hello world for webdesigners. I put some input fields in VISUAL STUDIO (yep a Microsoft product), then I published my site to and IIS 7 server (yap another Microsoft Product) and I opened the site in FireFox, Chrome, Safari, IE 8 and IE 9 (yup the last two are Microsoft Product).
Now you may guess........
Indeed... that what I design in a Microsoft Product, publish in a server Microsoft Product looks different when browsed in a Microsoft Product, but in the other browsers, is looks exactly as I designed it.
Because there are quite some things that do not work in IE8/IE9 but it does work in FF, Chrome, Safari and Opera.... Microsoft Internet Explorer will NOT BE SUPPORTED for my website.
I find IE an inconvenient browser compared to other browsers like FireFox. At home I use Windows XP, Mac and Linux. I can run FireFox on all of those OS's and have my Bookmark synced without hassle or issues. If there is a security update for FireFox, I just restart the browser and it automatically applies the changes and it takes me back to the web page I was viewing. If I want to increase my security, I have the option to easily install add ons like Ad Blocker and No Script. With IE, if I install a single IE security update, it requires that I reboot the OS for the changes to take effect. Surprisingly IE9 doesn't run on XP, but I can get HTML 5 enabled browsers quite easily on XP by installing other browsers which has no issue with the OS you are using. Even more surprising is the fact the 64bit IE9 runs slower than 32bit IE9 on a 64bit OS! Not sure what is going on there.
I don't understand why a powerful place like you cant make an internet browser as good as firefox.
I use to use only IE as my browser,until google chrome cameout and i was immediately catured by its beauty and i gave it a try and was blown away by its speed.when IE9 cameout i tried it to(since i an a nicrosoft fanboy).honestly its more beautiful than the previous versions of IE but still chrome is the most beautiful browser to date,secondly when it came to browsing experence i had a lot of compatibility issues on many websites on IE9 whereas chrome is flawless and the browsing experience is great to.Lastly chrome is still faster in loading websites and startup than IE9,especially when the internet connection is not that good,IE9 turns out to be very slow.I think microsoft has a lot to work on to improve IE9
The speed and rendering of IE9 are very good, but I only use it as a backup browser. Why? The navigation buttons, like Home, Refresh, History and Favorites aren't fully customizable, and I want the ability to move all of them to the LEFT of the address bar. Microsoft's mythical focus groups may have favored the right side, but I couldn't care less. Chrome and FF allow the buttons on either side; why not IE9?
How can I get a shirt? I love IE9 but until I can run it separately, I am stuck since my LOB requires IE8 (at least on my primary work computer). All my home are belong to IE9.
I love IE9 and its my default browser. But Microsoft seems to ignore the fact that it does not support fully some of the features that the old browser used to support like the the websites created by university as their tool of education where all the educational materials are uploaded by the faculty members, also many websites that require flash to play videos, even I cannot post my comment with IE9 (says publishing forever, is never published), so I have to use either google chrome or firefox just to post a comment on this blog. So, moving to the new version without fixing the problems from the older version makes me think (sorry but no intention to offend or point out anyone) that most of the people from microsoft do not use IE as their default browser at home, just in Redmond. Otherwise they should have been through these troubles with the browser. I hope that they fix the issues before the IE10 is out.
IE9 is good but it more features and more higher performance. Still I am like its simplicity and stability
