Oh well, I run the latest Continuous Dev builds of Chromium and manually update when I feel like it
Wouldn't there be a decent "middle ground"?
A background install and upgrade that doesn't require a restart?
Shouldn't we be past that day and age now?
Right now it's.
1. Pop-up - There is a new version.
2. Hit install so we can interrupt your work flow.
3. Pop-up is still there, but now says complete.
IF you have "background" update turned off, then it should work like this.
1. You have new update, Should just a tiny flashing button in the top corner.
2. Hit ok.
3. Continue surfing.
4. Changes take place after next program restart.
Why don't software guys ever measure how many clicks and mouse over actions it takes to get stuff done?
Us power users definitely notice the extra ones while your average user would definitely appreciate the added simplicity.
