3 Million IE7 downloads in the first four days

Tony Chor, the Group Program Manager for IE has stated that there has been over 3 million downloads of internet explorer 7 within the first four days.

My first thought, was, ‘How is this possible?’, ‘Who in their right mind uses IE??’, and since it’s not part of windows update yet, that means that users had to consciously go to download it. Well, then it hit me, just like I did, when it was released I downloaded it on a test machine just to see what it was all about. I have no intentions on using it, but I need to know a little about it so when my users start seeing it on their computers I can help with the barrage of question I’m sure we’ll get.

BTW, my IE7 crashed within 5 minutes of usage. Not a good feeling…
