        • Andy

          It’s generally agreed that Chrome is the fastest and most stable browser.

    IE is destined to go down because MS is locking XP users out of IE9. MS is limiting their future to those who will migrate to Windows 7. Too many people are perfectly happy with XP.

      XP market share is around 50% (or a little bit more). There are no new pcs sold with XP. The newest PCs with xp preinstalled are already at least one year old. So therefore you can count on most users having switched to win7 until 2012 (I estimate an average lifetime of a normal PC to be 3 years).
