I was watching college basketball last night and one of the commercials was from Microsoft showing off there browser IE9. The commercial made me think for a minute on what Microsoft was trying to accomplish here. The first thing that came to my mind was why wasn’t this released last March when the browser was introduced, especially since IE10 is right around the corner. Is all this a little too late? If you take a look at the browser stats I would say no. According to StatCounter, just in the U.S. IE9 has been gradually increasing to a point where it’s number 3 on the list. This progress is because of corporate America finally starting to switch from XP to 7. I for one thing am glad to see this.
Overall the commercial is good way to tell the world that IE is still here and it’s here to stay. With all the new features Microsoft has almost caught up. There still is a lot that needs to be done and IE10 should resolve that but until then, good job Microsoft on this commercial. It finally looks like you are starting care about your web browser.
Here is the IE9 Commercial, tell me what you think.
