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 have to say that I don't update the software on my computer. If the application takes care of updates in the background, great, otherwise...The old version stays. I know it's bad, but I don't make time.

If you don't have the time, then why are you on OSnews? ;)

As I said, I don't make time ;)
You always make time for what you want and you never make time for what you dislike...
