Internet Explorer Microsoft plans to automatically push Internet Explorer 7 to Windows XP users when the browser update is ready later this year. IE 7 will be delivered in the fourth quarter as a 'high priority' update via Automatic Updates in Windows XP, Gary Schare, Microsoft's director of IE product management, said in an interview Tuesday.

This isn't software pushed down your throat, it's a software update pushed down your throat.

People using firefox on windows still have IE on the system (unless they jumped through hoops to uninstall it, but that's fairly unlikely).

Just because their version of IE gets updated doesn't mean they'll stop using firefox.
