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.

The reason I do not use Chrome is that its EULA requires that you use only the latest version. It will download and install new version whenever it wants and you can do nothing about it (except say goodbye to Chrome).


Although the EULA does say you have to stay up to date, Google released an Administrative template for group policies to disable the auto update, and there are also registry keys to disable it. We use the group policy at work so that we can test updates before they are pushed to make sure it doesn't break our Chrome Frame enabled software.
