Internet Explorer to (Finally?) Auto Update

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:

  1. Windows XP still can only update to Internet Explorer 8
  2. 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.
