Criticism on Korean IE Use
"Korea Swimming against Tide in Digital Age"
In a November 6 article posted on its website, WP said that Google’s Chrome and Apple's Safari are dominating the global web browser market, but the outmoded Internet Explorer (IE) is still quite popular in digitally savvy South Korea.
The browser’s popularity is reported to be attributable to a governmental decision made in 1999. Under the laws on Internet security, which passed 14 years ago, IE is the only option for online shopping and Internet banking in Korea because most Korean web sites must use Active X controls from IE for financial transactions online.
They are still not admitting the real problem.Of course not- that would be a loss of face.
Everybody --and I mean everybody-- wants you to download and run their active X controlsAnd a lot of them are so poorly written that they are constantly being patched/updated. It seems like at least once a week my wife has to sit through 10 minutes of updates/downloads when doing online banking with KEB.
