Internet Explorer To Start Automatic Upgrading Across Windows 7, Vista And XP
To keep its Internet Explorer Market share and its browsing crown, Microsoft has started borrowing few tricks from its rivals. Microsoft has announced that they are going to tie Internet Explorer into future Windows Update releases. This new update system will start in the new year in both Australia and Brazil (Why only these two countries is a mystery) with a graduated roll-out from there throughout 2012.
Microsoft says that this will help keep their browser secure and on the cutting edge of all those HTML5 developments. Fortunately, according to the Windows Team Blog, auto-update antagonists will still be able to opt out of the system. See how Ryan Galvin, Internet Explorer's General Manager, explains the reasoning over at the official blog; the link's just below.
