As we know web browsers are a necessity for us to browse the world wide web and web browser isn’t just a software which was once created and we have been using that same application today. Like technology, it has evolved from time to time, and there are a few big companies who are constantly participating and struggling in the browser’s war.

Internet Explorer 9 is the hot news now a days for all internet users, specially designers, developers etc. who are browser conscious and have had a bad experience with IE 6. IE came a long way and there was a time when it was unbeatable in the browser wars, but its usage and market share starts dropping because of other more powerful browsers like Firefox, chrome etc. Now IE 9 is out and this infographic shows clear fact and figures that how IE reached form version 6 to version 9.

But at this stage, I want to say to Microsoft that It’s 2011 and with the better version of IE you would also need to give us some strong reasons to switch from Firefox or Google Chrome to Internet Explorer 9. Now it’s not that easy as it was in 2001 when you released Internet Explorer 6.
