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 wish windows would do the same. Firefox just wastes my time while I wait for it to update and redownload the page I had open. Windows wastes my time and totally disrupts my workflow.

It is such rude behaviour how windows does not put your applications back to where the the were when it started updating. If applying updates resulted in all my applications being reopened with everything just how I left it, I would not procrastinate applying updates as much.
