Microsoft Redefines Battlefield for Browsers - Releases Internet Explorer 9.0 Exclusively to Windows 7/Vista SP2

In a potentially game-changing move, Microsoft has not created a release of Internet Explorer 9.0 for Windows XP.  According to Ryan Gavin, senior director of IE business and marketing, Microsoft is focused on Windows 7, taking advantage of the rich graphics capabilities of the OS and the underlying hardware, while at the same time allowing web sites to integrate alongside other native applications in the Windows 7 experience.  This focus has enabled Microsoft to achieve huge performance gains with IE 9.

So what are the usage share ramifications for this decision?  Microsoft seems willing to sacrifice usage share in the short term in order to leapfrog the competition in the long run by applying all their resources to modern versions of Windows.  Although Windows XP currently has 54% of global usage share, Windows 7 usage share is following a strong, fairly linear path upwards and Windows versions from Vista forward should have a majority share within a couple years.

The new browser battle for Microsoft is Internet Explorer 9.0 on Windows 7.  On this, Internet Explorer 9.0 reached 3.6% usage share in March
