Internet Explorer As it turns out, Google's idea of silently and automatically updating web browsers for security's sake is actually a pretty darn good idea - Chrome is pretty much always up-to-date. Microsoft agrees with this, and has announced it's going to automatically update Internet Explorer on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

Maybe now IE can stop being the poster child of not supporting newer or updated technologies.

I, myself, am not a fan of IE for the simple reason that what works on other browsers just simply breaks on IE <your version here> without applying some kind of craptacular hack that will HOPEFULLY make what I'm trying to do work.

I just pray to whatever god or deity is listening that they don't hose the versions of Windows that still have IE tied to the OS because of some bad module that got overlooked in QA.
