Having suffered from wanting to stay up to date while also not wanting to have to manualy do evenything I wrote a batch file on windows for automaticaly downloading and installing the lastest nightly. It downloads the nightly zip, extracts, copies all current plugins and sherlocks to the new release and then swaps out the old for the new. Sorted easy updates. It does mean downloading the full zip all the time but since FireFox is still not a 1.x the changes are not as focused as being able to patch a single file or a few files. Windows update is all good and well but it's still offering me an update to my Nvidia card from Oct 2003 when I have installed the July 2004 drives. Hmmm, not the perfect system, although having seen v5 of windows update they are getting there (<http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/>).
