Users worldwide downloaded Internet Explorer 9 Beta no less than 2 million times since the end of January 2011, pushing the total number of downloads to more than 25 million, which is nothing short of impressive, especially considering that Internet Explorer 9 was still in Beta.

"We've seen a fantastic reaction to the IE9 Platform Previews, and we've had over 25 million downloads of the IE9 Beta itself making it our fastest adopted browser beta of all time.

IE9 Beta has been downloaded about 1.5 times more than IE8 Beta over the same time period. When adjusted for the installed base of PCs that can run IE9, IE9 Beta has actually been downloaded at a rate of almost 3 times that of IE8 Beta," revealed Ryan Gavin.

And this trend is bound to accelerate now that Microsoft made available for download the Build 9.0.8080.16413 Release Candidate of IE9.
