Internet & Networking When Google released the first version of its Chrome web browser, many eyebrows were raised over the fact that it updated itself automatically and silently, in the background, without user intervention or even so much as a notice. As it turns out, this has been a brilliant move by Google, as Chrome users are the most likely to have up-to-date installations of their browser, followed at a respectable distance by Firefox users. Safari and Opera trail behind significantly.

Interestingly if as you state you are not interested in new features you can in Ubuntu, and wait for Ubuntu to Upgrade.

System(Menu)-->Software Sources(Menu Item)-->Updates(Tab)-->Automatic Updates(Title)-->Check for Updates(Checkbox:Daily)-->Install security updates without confirmation(Radio Button)

BTW I leave the example above as to why stuff if clearer to do though the command line.
