As far as I know, Internet Explorer still dominates the browser market.  The W3 counter of 25k websites for May shows that IE accounted for ~58% of browsers out there. But of that 58%, only ~2% is coming from IE 8.0. To promote their newest version of browser, Microsoft has partnered with Feeding America. For every browser download from www.browserforthebetter.com, Microsoft will donate 8 meals to help alleviate hunger.

I’ve been a Firefox user for some time now, and I spend enough time with techies to not want to dabble back into IE. But I will at least download IE 8, because this is microphilanthropy at its best. One click to generate 8 wholesome meals? Awesome. The charitable donation is only good for downloads up till August 8th so don’t wait too long!

Hi this is Feran with the Internet Explorer Outreach Team. You can also check out some humorous videos featuring Dean Cain at the Browser for the Better site – http://www.browserforthebetter.com?ocid=ie8_sm_a. Also, know that IE8 must be downloaded and installed in order for your 8 meals to be donated.
Thanks!
