Google Chrome is Overtaking Firefox Among Power Users 3:00

Internet Explorer 9 Beta hits 2 Million Downloads in Two Days 10:20
The download numbers on IE9 Beta are pretty impressive.  I’ve actually downloaded it by the time I’ve posted these show notes and I’m honestly pretty happy with it.  Make sure you try out both and see which one you prefer.
