Internet Explorer 9 continues its growth this month as more and more people are switching to the latest version of IE. As of the end of September, IE9 now holds 31% share on Windows 7 in the US. Worldwide, IE9 is 22% of all usage share on Windows 7.
Source: Net Applications, September 2011 (latest mainline browsers compared - with exception of Firefox as Firefox 7 just released on Sept 27th).
A lot of IE9’s progress on Windows 7 has come from sites encouraging their customers to pin IE9 to their taskbar. The cyclical impact is becoming increasingly apparent: IE9 users love pinning their favorite sites like Facebook, and as a result these sites are seeing increased time spent engaging with their content. Photobucket is a cool example - they had pinning capabilities enabled, but recently added a dynamic Jump List and a prompt to encourage visitors to try pinning their page to their Windows 7 taskbar. We love seeing scenarios like this come together! From the start, we built IE9 to make sites shine, and tools like BuildMyPinnedSite.com make it easy to add value to your site through features IE9 offers.
Another great trend is the sharp drop of IE6 as more people move towards modern browsers. IE6 has now dropped to 9% usage share worldwide in September (and if you remove China’s figures, IE6 only represents 3.5% usage share worldwide). Poland also crossed an important threshold this month – their IE6 usage share dropped to less than one percent. Gratulacje! It’s super interesting to us to look at sites like the IE6 Countdown and notice that over 50% of the visitors in September were using IE6, and 72% of those visitors were from outside the US. It’s clear that partners around the world are spreading the word about the Countdown and are sharing ways to get their users off of IE6. THANK YOU! If you’ve moved off of IE6 this month, congratulations.

That's a super news. Please provide us with a "Create Download" button in IE's download manager (Ctrl+J), so the user can enlist the download by manually entering the URL to save a file, resource or the entire webpage within the download manager. Also, introduce the paste shortcut Ctrl+V in download manager for a single entry and Ctrl+Shift+V for batch entries. Thank you.
Time taken to accomplish this test by various browsers is as follow:
Apple Safari 5.0.5:
Google Chrome 12:
Mozilla Firefox 6.0.1:
Internet Explorer 9:
Internet Explorer 10 Developer Preview (v: 10.0.8102.0):
As it is affirmed, there is a significant difference in performances and IE is lagging behind vividly as compared to Safari & Chrome. Please address these crucial areas which are required by almost every next-generation interactive/rich web-application.
Bleh. Marketshare means nothing in browsers. Just get it fast and get it to follow the standards.
I ran DOM test on my computer:
Firefox 7: 340ms
Is it a genuine test?
Now, when browsing international sites too, can be automatically translated if ie9 I decided to give Google Chrome
IE9 translation plug-in slow, slow, very slow. Very troublesome
@Gurtej, certainly it is. It selects a DOM and does operations on the live DOM in a loop. IE DOM recommends us to operate on fragmented DOM rather than the live DOM. If we amend the same code with fragmentation, the results won't be so ugly. But if you look at the results, Safari 5.0.5 outperforms IE10 with 200+ times faster speed (0.172s vs 41s). IE team need to rework their DOM because other vendors have already swift DOM manipulation in place. Moreover, in Windows 8, IE's layout engine would also be responsible for rendering metro-type apps and they are welcoming the large group of web-developers to develop Windows 8 app using HTML5, CSS and JS. Therefore, issues like these should be addressed for the convenience of those developers rather than making them uneasy because the model is not well implemented!
Sadly Microsoft does not even listen to feedback on Connect now. There are hundreds of thousands of requests at Connect to bring back many removed features like page title, status bar, progress indicator, search box back of IE but MS doesn't care or doesn't listen. Even with two IEs interfaces shipping in Windows 8, both of them are dumbed down.
@7flavor Not taking your word for truth, but if that IS true that is really sad. IE was moving forward so fast.
@Nathan, thank you for all the details. I do agree that sofware issues need to be
taken care of. A stitch in time saves nine. My teenaged son would
encounter lag playing Fruit Ninja on his HTC Trophy. I thought it as a
hardware issue blaming HTC. After the Mango update the lag is gone.
Similalry looking at the screen of my Omnia 7, I would think if the
super AMOLED was worth the hype. After the Mango update it has become
blindingly bright and I have adjusted it to a low setting now. Not that
it is a drain on battery rather post Mango battery performance has
improved a lot.
But not everything is working properly. In the Mango videos it was
claimed that pressing an address in your calendar would open the
location on Bing maps. Not happening on my phone - post Mango. There is
no such problem pressing an address in your contacts list.
@James Manes, why don't you check the Connect website yourself to verify the truth? It is open to everyone, at least the existing feedback provided. They do say "We're listening to your feedback" but they zero product design changes based on the feedback. The top most requests were the dedicated search box back, along with page title, fully functional status bar, progress bar, cookie blocked status.
Put in support for .ogg ogg vorbis format in IE10 please.
Why does IE addon page list looks like a 5 year old kid website? IE9 addons are so less and useless. I just tried looking at the addons on chrome and FF and they are way too good. I know MS did a good work at IE9 and I FORCE my self to use IE to convince myself to feel it works good. Being a developer/researcher and a diehard fan of .NET technology, i respect every developer at MS. But I still can't digest who is coming up with the decisions of making software look so dumb. I know you guys don't want to copy others, but why not just take the good stuff from others? IE no longer is top of the list, so stop trying to make your own trend and follow others success recipe starting with better addons support. Don't be like your CEO at take decisions.
From a Developer to Developers@MS
IE should set up a translation immediate.
IE is still the widely used browser.

Sorry to go against the flow... IE9 'feels' fast enough to me, it's security abilities such as the ability to add tracking protection lists are a big plus in a large network environment and the ability to search from the address bar de-clutters the screen, if you need more, don't forget the 'ALT' key!
I'm not suprised. Internet Explorer has always been good to me. Well, for the most part. Firefox was just confusing to me. Nice article.
Hi im sorry i may be out of the subject but i want to contact the hotmail supporters for my e mail has been blocked for 5 months and i tried every way possible to get it back but i couldnt can you help me out in this and thank you in advance

Professionally i found that people like to use Firefox. But still, few of them have affiliations with IE and they set and use as default coz they felt it friendly and got used to of it.
