IE7 usage growing rapidly…

October 25, 2006

…and they haven’t even released it through Automatic Updates yet!

Microsoft have announced that there have been over 3 million downloads of IE7 in the first four days of it’s official release. That’s a pretty staggering figure by all accounts and shows the incredible loyalty Microsoft have from your average web users.

Of course that penetration will grow exponentially quicker once it is released as an Automatic Update towards the end of the month.

Interestingly, this blog had 1.5% IE7 usage up to the launch and today has 6%.

I’ve found a few sites that still have alignment issues although nothing too major. The main issue I’ve seen has been with HTML email newsletters a lot of which I receive to my web mail account. I’m seeing a lot of problems with alignment and images straying over text showing just how poor some companies preparedness has been.
