I suspect that the rate will slow now that all the folks that were watching for the release have got the new version downloaded.


I do still run into people that didn’t know an alternative to Internet Explorer existed. It’s nice to be able to offer a good free alternative browser as a possible solution to problems that are run into with Explorer.
