• Steve Gibson’s Never10 vs Josh Mayfield’s GWX Control Panel

    Many of you have asked. Here’s the whole story.

    This from Josh on updating GWX Control Panel:

    Beginning with 1.7.3, you still have to initiate the right-click -> Check for updates -> Click to check for a newer version yourself, but once you do, if an update is available, it will download/install automatically (previously, it just took you to the downloads page). In version 1.8, monitor mode will check for updates in the background and give you a notification when an update is available. (The monitor mode icon will have a different look with an update is found.)

    Also, note that both GWX CP and Never10 have standalone, no-install-necessary versions.
