We reviewed the usage share numbers on three of the iPad's top competitors and found the following:
The iPad has 0.92% share of all browsing. This compares to:

|Samsung Galaxy Tab||0.018%|
In other words, the iPad has 53 times the usage share of its nearest competitor.
When Microsoft decided not to support XP for Internet Explorer 9
, they narrowed the front for the browser wars to Windows 7. We've been tracking this strategy ever since, and in May, Internet Explorer 9 on Windows 7 reached 12.2% worldwide (including custom editions). In the U.S., Internet Explorer 9 on Windows 7 averaged 17% usage share during the last three days of May.
According to Microsoft, Internet Explorer 9 is designed to take advantage of the graphics capabilities of Windows 7 and the underlying hardware for better performance and integrates websites into the Windows 7 experience.
