66% of Windows Users Can't Use IE9

IE 9

Microsoft has just released its latest browser Internet Explorer version 9 beta. But Microsoft's latest browser is not going to be used by the majority of Windows XP OS users.

Thus, IE9 will not be used by more than two-thirds of PC users. In August 2010, the number of Windows XP users still dominate the market that is 66.7 percent of Global PC. Meanwhile, Vista users ranged from 15.3 percent, while Windows 7 is still around 17.4 percent. While for the older OS like Windows 2000, Windows 98 and Millennium users have very little amount.

"It's just a problem in growth, at least for 12 to 18 months into the future more companies and consumers are migrating to Windows 7," said Al Hilwa IDC analyst as quoted PCAdvisor on Saturday (09/18/2010).

Meanwhile, Ray Valdes, Gartner analyst says this is the main weakness of the IE9 strategy, "And this is an opportunity for competitors to continue to erode the market share of IE," he said. Microsoft did not fully release the final version. So there was a chance for the software giant to consider the XP users.

IE9 beta version that been launched is claimed to have the ability to turn any website into an application in Windows taskbar. It is allowing its users to use one-click option to access their favorite sites. Speculation is circulating says that IE9 final version will be launched on April 2011.
