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 believe this is to get people to move of of IE6.

Microsoft wants a new IE release every year, this system is to prevent people still running IE10, IE11, IE12, IE13 in a few years from now.
