Net Apps: IE9 on Windows 7 Hits 30% Usage Share in the US, Worldwide 22%

Net Applications’ September 2011 report comparing the mainline browsers just released is reporting that Microsft Windows Internet Explorer 9 continues its growth this month as more and more people are switching to the latest version of IE9.

“As of the end of September, IE9 now holds 31% share on Windows 7 in the United States. Worldwide, IE9 is 22% of all usage share on Windows 7. Share of worldwide browsing of Windows 7 also grew in September, passing 30% with 30.4% of worldwide browsing share,” revealed Net Apps.

Skipping XP support, Microsoft has been pushing Internet Explorer 9 and Windows 7 as the best browsing experience on Windows 7 because of IE9’s use of hardware acceleration and its integration with the Windows 7 user interface.

A lot of IE9’s progress on Windows 7 has come from sites encouraging their customers to pin IE9 to their taskbar.
