I've been staying in South Korea for almost a month and here, more than anywhere else, Internet Explorer is just THE browser.
I installed Mozilla on a friend's computer and noticed some weird things:
Even if Mozilla is open and ready to be used, the friend clicked on the IE quick start button, waited for 15 seconds until it was ready for use (yes a slow Win98 machine...) and then started browsing.
I was surprized to see that the favorites were not being used. Sites accessed daily were accessed through the history list of the address field.
Let's see what can be done. I'm really hoping that the Korean W3C office will work hard on evangelizing the W3C standards...
