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.

I am completely uninterested in discussing anything to do with microsoft with you. If you want to stay on topic, thats cool, but you have yet to comment on anything that I, the article, or anyone else here are talking about.

“IE8 will not automatically install - the user has control over whether to upgrade to IE8. When offered IE8, three choices are offered: Ask later, install, or don’t install"

Understand something this is about IE8 and precious little else, and you know it. Take the above statement and argue one way or the other. Pretending this is not about Microsoft is just plain silly.
