Users who surf the web with Google Chrome are more likely to be running the latest browser version compared to Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera users, according to a new study from researchers at Google Switzerland and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Ninety-seven percent of Chrome users ran the latest version three weeks after its release, found the study, which attributed the high marks to Chrome's silent-update mechanism, which does not allow users to disable automatic updates. Firefox was second best at 85 percent, followed by Safari (53 percent) and Opera (24 percent). Internet Explorer was not analyzed. — DK
