Highlighting its domestic success, the company boasted a slightly greater number of U.S. residents running both programs: nearly 30 percent.

I’m not suprised, I actually like IE9.

More than IE8 and a lot more than any version of FF.

Why isn’t Microsoft bundling IE 9.0 with all shipments of Windows 7? this would seem to make sense going forwards, since it is the current version and works exceptionally well with Win 7. I have been using it since it’s introduction, and have found it to be as good or better than Firefox (I have the latest version of this too) in every respect.

Lovely!
IE whatever still sucks with JAVA and all of the moron web developers seem to be enamoured with JAVA.
It also won’t install on the last “usefull” version of Windoze (XP).
Still like IE7 better than Firefox but have found more and more abysmally coded JAVA pages that will only load on Firefox.

Kind of miss 1990 when I could surf the net with a 2400 baud modem and my DOS terminal program. No JAVA, No Scripts, No Viruses, No Spam, No Crap.
