Fully agree with krissilver. Great way to turn off "normal" mom and pop users. Seriously, Netscape Communicator had a better mechanism for handling updates, with byte level code updates and checkpointing on downloads. I know the current Mozilla crew despise the Communicator 4.X spaghetti code, but hey, it sure worked better in this regard.
