Making it harder to get updates by having to go to a website is likely 
to have a big impact on keeping people up to date especially when it 
comes to security. Even with automatic updates, there's usually a long 
tail of those that don't update.

Thunderbird has traditionally presented a what's new page on update. 
Surely some experiments for putting a button on there could be done? 
(You could probably also do some a-b testing with something like optimizly).
