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.

Actually the numbers say something else. Exploits on Windows XP is going down and exploits on Windows Vista/7 is going up.

Obviously it will take time for Windows 7 to be as bad as Windows XP.
