Flattr this!

Microsoft has decided to follow the example of Google and Mozilla, and includes automatic updates of Internet Explorer to new versions.

Now new versions and security updates are available to users via Windows Update, but the transition from one version to another is always required manual work – for the installation attended a separate window.

For many users, additional steps have been disastrous, and often they stop them from installing a new version of the browser.

Since this time Internet Explorer is updated, quiet as it makes itself Windows. Since January, users in Australia and Brazil will receive updates automatically. Gradually, this practice will be extended to all customers.

For corporate clients, Microsoft will offer a utility to update locks – so that administrators can test and implement them without haste or fear that they will cause trouble and malfunctions.
