Microsoft and Mozilla have spelled out steps they plan to take to streamline the upgrade process for their browsers, Edge and Firefox, respectively.
In March, Microsoft announced it would change how the company updatsd Edge, noting that the current method, which relied on a utility best known for keeping Office applications up to date on Macs, would be awarded a browser-specific servicing module.
“It will solely be responsible for updating Edge-related products and will not be affected (e.g. blocked) by other pending product updates,” Olivia Zhang, program manager, wrote in a March 10 post to a company blog. “Updates will happen automatically and silently, and no out-of-Edge notifications will be shown.”
