    People (Mozilla devs and r/Firefox) criticise me for disabling updates, “you shouldn’t do that”, “why do you need to do that”. This is why.

    I am an adult, and a computer programmer. I am perfectly capable of weighing the pros and cons of automatic updates. And I will tell you, for me, after doing this for 15 years, automatic updates just aren’t worth it. They cause more problems than they solve. When a new release comes out, I look at the notes and decide if I need it or want it. I am in control. My browser is not a playground for Google devs or anyone else to mess with. I use it for work, and I’m not going to let them screw that up.

    Can you even disable updates on chrome?

      You get what you pay for.

      Wondering if these shouting enterprise customers do actually pay for Chrome in some kind of way.

        It’s just like every other Google product. You pay with your soul :)
