2.3 million IE9 downloads in first 24 hours

According to Windowsstreamblog, since the release of Internet Explorer 9, there have been about 2.35 million times in the first 24 hours, It means there are 27 downloads in every second or over 240 in every 9 Second.

It’s impressive and it makes IE9 twice as popular as its beta predecessor. Obviously only Windows users get to experience IE9, limiting Microsoft’s audience a little. The new app is fully hardware accelerated, with a Tracking Protection system that uses managed lists of trusted sites to attempt to control who has access to your information and surfing patterns.

Anyway, considering Firefox 3 got the Guinness world record for most software downloads in a day, with 8 million way back in 2008 this download is as impressive as Firefox download.
