How many times have you downloaded a file and it has been forgotten to a folder?

If we are going to install it from our own device have to be aware that this may not be current. Generally the installer that requires an Internet connection download the latest version. In our case we see that we are installing the latest version. This is a minor problem, however, since both browsers offer the ability to download the latest version automatically if we become obsolete.
