Upgrading to IE10

I've just upgraded my Windows 7 box to Internet Explorer 10, not for wanting to use IE, more out of a belief that it couldn't be worse than IE9.

After I downloaded the installer and kicked it off, it found a short list of programs it felt it needed shut down before it could do its magic:

  • Google Chrome
  • Dropbox
  • What the hell, everything else you're running

Three minutes and a complete reboot later it was finished. My PC is now rather sluggish and the hard drive is making lots of noises, but doubtless that will pass.

How is it that Google manage to update Chrome so efficiently I don't even notice it, but Microsoft still acts like it owns my PC?
