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.

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.

Try SRWare Iron, it is Chromium with the spyware removed:

Also a visibly small effort with a bit unknown level of trustworthiness, one which would most likely replicate mistakes from Chromium (which doesn't have spyware... but has reliably trustworthy packagers in many distros), and lags behind it a bit.
