Microsoft, We'd like updates, Really we would

But when are you going to allow ANY browser other than IE to download them?
Sure I can go fishing to find downloads and set the auto update.

But like now, when I am checking multiple systems, please just stop demanding I run IE to get updates, it's just plain rudeness to your customers.

Or come up with a non-browser solution we can download.

That whole European lawsuit about tying the browser to the OS meant nothing to you I take it.



  1. Often (but not always) you can find "administrator updates," which download the locally-installable fixpack or patch... suitable for putting on a local network for your internal staff to use without going back to MS. Not all updates offer these, though, and they can be a grand challenge to find.

  2. That was my point exactly, plus I don't want to play the "did we install this yet?" game.
    Especially not with multiple clients who have a number of servers.
