Microsoft team of developers has had a gutsful waiting for Internet users to upgrade to the latest form of Internet Explorer and is currently going to do this automatically.
Microsoft announced that starting this week it will start auto-updating Internet Explorer (IE) browser users’ computers to the latest versions of the software, depending on which Windows version they are currently using. The company thinks that it will get away with it since Google’s Chrome browser, for example, already does that.
Although there will be a number of firms who might see their networks go crazy with such kind of an upgrade, Microsoft Corporation is providing them with workarounds in case they express the desire to remain on their current IE version. The company explained that generally the feeling is that they will manage to force users on unlikely ancient browsers like Internet Explorer 6 and have no idea how to upgrade them to receive some safer programs. The matter is that usually such types end up recruited into botnet.
In fact, this move is more like a bit of an experiment, because the company is still not really sure how this auto-update process will go down with Internet users. Microsoft is going to roll the process out slowly worldwide in order to see if anything goes wrong. It seems that Australia will be the guinea pig for this purpose.
The company keeps insisting that the change will be good for all of its core browser audiences, which includes people, developers, and the enterprise. The move can be good for people since it allows them stay up to date and secure automatically. This can also let developers, who are also people, focus on the latest Internet technologies like HTML 5 without having a need to worry about whether most of the online users are accessing the Internet with an updated browser.
People running Windows XP and having Internet Explorer 6 installed will be updated to version 8 of the browser, as that is the most recent version of Internet Explorer supported on this operating system. Meanwhile, users of Windows Vista and Windows 7 will be updated to version 9 of the Microsoft browser. Internet Explorer 8 and 9 are now offered through Windows Update as an Important update, but it is not carried out automatically.

|so if im on win7 with firefox not IE will it automaticaly download and install?|
|i would assume u would have to have some version of IE already on ur computer for it to auto update but im not sure on that. i also have been a firfox user since mozilla first realsed its browser and have uninstalled IE on my computers.|
|The only time I've used IE since FIREFOX came out was on a new computer to download and install FIREFOX. Then I delete the IE shortcut from my desktop.... With all the available add-ons I'm able to customize FIREFOX to meet my own personal needs. To me, FIREFOX w/GOOGLE is more user friendly than any other product out there and I have tried them all. Who needs CHROME or BING?? Go back to sleep MICROSOFT - Who wants all the viruses that come along for the ride on your IE????|
|THIS IS EXACTLY why I do not use Internet Exploder and another reason why active-x is so dangerous.|
The arrogance from Microcrap to auto up date users browsers and don't know it it is going to fuk it up...Jeez gates gotta be smoking something.
|update it for no one to use it|
|Apple Safari is best man|

|wow... 8 versions already and it's still the crappiest browser. version 9?? well, they really should just stick it up their ass, send it to recycle bin and click "Empty recycle bin"...|
|LOL @ Apple Safari|
|@ #1 emokid09.... if you have your updates to where you can pick and choose what actually gets installed you'll see it come through for it to be updated and you can "choose" to install the update or not. if you have your updates set to automatically update, you'll just have the files on your computer. if you don't have IE even installed on your computer and it automatically updates, then it will install IE9 itself back on to your computer. its just an annoyance of microsoft having the control it does with windows users. but then again, if at anytime they add "we will automatically update and install" into any "terms of service" of you being a windows user, then they are pretty much allowed to do what they want. i use firefox too, and when they upgrade, they send the notice right when they do it and ask if you want to upgrade, this is no different if you have your updates set up right other than the fact that it seems like microsoft is forcing you when they really aren't...just set how your updates are handled and it won't affect anything|

|fukkin bullshit crap browser, will go with mozilla|
|I got to love that... delete an icon and you think you have uninstalled IE.. LMFAO.. IE is intergrated into the whole OS, such programs as Windows Live Messenger, Outlook, Explorer and most importantly Windows Update uses it.|
Your an idiot for thinking you have removed it. I dont mind what browser i use although Firefox 8 and IE 9 would be my fav
|firefox so far still not too compatible with many websites' codes. if you use firefox to use on, say, triple w dot temposocalmls dot com, the webpage layout and functions on it always come out eiter in gibberish or deformed layout. firefox never correct or improve such compatibility problem and many functions simply won't work. firefox also got big problem in the browser's font sizes adjustment. if you change the font size over size 16 to 18 or even larger to 20, then the whole webpage would come out very messy. this are the two flaws that sometimes i have to use internet explorer explorer. other than that, i only use firefox. chrome actually sucks too, everything looks just so light weighted and very uncomfortable to use. chrome is like how google messed up and around with their email layout and functions, the new version simply stupid and bad enough just like internet explorer. FIREFOX STILL COMES OUT ON TOP, just don't forget to put add-ons such "Noscript", "Adblock Plus", "WOT". also, if you use firefox for google's gmail, then everytime when you want to attach some stuff under 25MB, you just drag n drop them to gmail's attachment box, but if you use internet explorer for your gmail attachments, then it'd become a very tiresome repeat since you have to do it one by one with many clicks, mouse buttons press and hold to get the job done.||
