Ryan Gavin over at Exploring IE has announced that Internet Explorer is going to auto update from this point forward.
Can I get a huge “FINALLY” from the choir!
I think this is a great thing for users and the web development community and will become even more so that farther in our rear-view mirror Windows XP becomes. There are two issues that remain, however:
- Windows XP still can only update to Internet Explorer 8
- Enterprises and IT outfits can opt-out
A great step in the right direction, but we can still be held back by enterprise users. It might be a needed concession, but still a concession.

Only a few years late, right? IE 8 is the bane of my existence when it comes to web design. I can’t wait til it’s out of the picture.
Sadly, IE8 is going to be around for a LONG time because that is the highest version XP can have. As long as XP has market share, so does IE8 sadly.
