IE 7 Tops 100M Download Mark

Less than three months after its official release, Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) 7 browser has crossed the 100 million installation threshold. Tony Chor, group program manager at Microsoft (Quote), said the milestone was officially reached on January 8.

While the industry likes to position Mozilla's Firefox browsers as IE 7's top competition, it is technically IE 6.

According to WebSideStory stats cited by Chor in a blog post, over 26 percent of visitors to U.S. Web sites are now using IE 7, second only to IE 6.

Just a week after IE 7 was released, WebSideStory issued a press release which forecast that IE 7 was not likely to have rapid adoption based on the historical trends of IE 6's adoption rates.IE 7 Tops 100M Download Mark
