Microsoft will push automatic updates to Internet Explorer, starting January 2012

Microsoft will push automatic updates to Internet Explorer, starting January 2012

Microsoft is set to get a little more pushy ensuring you have an up-to-date browser and will automatically update Internet Explorer to the latest version on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 beginning in January. This will occur for those who have enabled Automatic Updates within Windows Update, the company says.

The move echoes a trend started with Google’s Chrome, which automatically updates itself by default: other browsers (such as Firefox and Opera) prompt before updating. Chrome’s update strategy is why a previous version loses market share quickly when a new version comes out.
