I’ve never noticed when Google Chrome installs updates, simply because it happens behind the scenes and doesn’t stress me with a window saying that there is a new version and blah blah blah, I need to install it immediately. Unfortunately, it’s not the same experience with Internet Explorer. This right here is the ridiculous story of updating IE8 to 9.
- First of all, you need to go to a special link on Microsoft to download version 9.
- The install starts and it’s not quick.
- You are asked to restart your computer!!!
- You’ve restarted, then some Windows updates take place and you have to wait again!
- Windows loads and you are ready to use IE9
Now, I’m asking you – do you think that’s the way it’s supposed to be? How’s that posible that other browsers don’t bother you with system restart, OS Updates and stuff, but this low quality browser needs all that time… Unbelievable, isn’t it?! The top of the joke is the following paragraph copied from Windows -> Microsoft -> Products -> Internet Explorer 9 -> Features -> Fast
Installs faster, starts faster
The shorter, streamlined installation of Internet Explorer 9 is faster than previous versions. It requires fewer decisions on your part, takes less time to load pages, and doesn’t require that you install updates separately. Once it’s installed, you’re ready to start browsing.
Call me hater if you like, but I like to look at results, not someone’s promising words!
PS. let me add “…you’re ready to start browsing… from where to download a better browser!”
