Internet Explorer 7 to be automatic update
07 August, 2006
ISLAMABAD : PC users will be offered Microsoft's latest browser later this year via the company's automatic update programme. Normally used to ensure users of the Windows operating system get the latest security fixes and software patches, the company has said that users will also be getting its latest browser, Internet Explorer 7 as a "high priority" download.
Microsoft has said that the update would help users be "more secure and up-to-date", Pocket-lint reported. However users, who will be offered three options of install, will be able to delay any install or not accept one all together under the scheme. Users who do decide to install the new browser will be able to preserve their current toolbars, home page, search settings, and favourites and installing will not change your choice of default browser.
