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).

Use Chromium instead.

I want the freedom to decide if and when I will upgrade.

Man, use a package manager!

I don't like how Chrome works and I can't trust Chromium either.

Ever since they made a mistake where cookies/ids got send to Google and could be correlated even in Chromium not just Chrome.

I feel I just can't trust Chromium, it is better than the situation with Microsoft obviously because the source isn't even available.
