Modern Warfare (for Browsers)

When Microsoft decided not to support XP for Internet Explorer 9, they narrowed the front for the browser wars to Windows 7.  We've been tracking this strategy ever since, and in May, Internet Explorer 9 on Windows 7 reached 12.2% worldwide (including custom editions). In the U.S., Internet Explorer 9 on Windows 7 averaged 17% usage share during the last three days of May.

According to Microsoft, Internet Explorer 9 is designed to take advantage of the graphics capabilities of Windows 7 and the underlying hardware for better performance and integrates websites into the Windows 7 experience.
