All the Way to Internet Explorer 13

By | October 12, 2010 | 4 Comments

All the Way to Internet Explorer 13It seems like Microsoft decided to increase its domain names portfolio, as company has recently registered a bunch of new IE related domain names:

InternetExplorer13.com
ie12beta.com
ie13beta.com

Unfortunately for Microsoft, they failed to register InternetExplorer8.com, InternetExplorer9.com and InternetExplorer10.com domains, as now they belong to someone else.

Considering that .com price is ~8-9 USD, why stop at number 13?
