I like to keep my computer as secure as possible. I install high priority updates pretty much as soon as I find out about them, but I didn't when I had dial-up. I just didn't have the bandwidth to just go download a 10MB file.

"The analysis suggests that most users of web browsers aren’t filled with thoughts of Internet security, but rather with thoughts of convenience."

 

Big surprise there. I hope they didn't waste my tax dollars on this study.

Of course, there are other things to consider, such as Firefox updating and then listing half your addons as incompatible, and then sometimes even breaking stuff. Or IE7's mandatory WGA check to update.

That hasn't happened in a long time for me...what add-ons are you using? Most of the popular one's have updates ready by the end of the night when a firefox update comes out.
