cgriffin21 writes “Microsoft expected Internet Explorer 9 to be popular, but after more than two million people downloaded the IE9 beta in the first two days after its release, the software giant is having a hard time choosing which eye-popping statistics to cite. Microsoft says its “Beauty of the Web” site, which illustrates the aesthetic advantages of IE9′s support for HTML5 and hardware acceleration, has had more the 9 million visits and 26 million page views since the IE9 beta launch on Sept. 15. Microsoft’s developer-oriented IE Test Drive Site has had 4 million page views during the same period.”
