A tombstone went viral on the Internet after Microsoft dropped Internet Explorer

To commemorate his disappearance, he spent a month and 430,000 won ($ 330) to design and order a tombstone with the “e” logo of the Explorer and the English epitaph: “It was a good tool to download other browsers “.

After the monument was displayed in a cafe run by his brother in the southern city of Gyeongju, a photo of the tombstone went viral.

On Wednesday, Microsoft downgraded support for Internet Explorer, once ubiquitous after 27 years, to focus on its faster browser, Microsoft Edge.

Jung said the memorial showed his feelings for the old software, which played such an important role in his professional life.

It was a nuisance, but I would call it a love-hate relationship, because Explorer itself once dominated an era.he told Reuters.

He said it took him longer to make sure his online sites and apps worked with Explorer than other browsers.

But his customers kept asking him to make sure their websites looked good in Explorer, which for years remained the default browser for South Korean government offices and many banks.

Launched in 1995, Explorer has been the world’s leading browser for more than a decade, as it was included in Microsoft’s Windows operating system, which was pre-installed on billions of computers.

But it began to lose ground to Google’s Chrome in the late 2000’s and became the subject of countless memes on the Internet, with some developers suggesting that it was slow compared to its rivals.

Jung said he wanted to make people laugh at the tombstone, but he was still surprised by how far the joke went on the internet.

That’s another reason I have to thank Explorer, now it’s up to me to make a world class joke“, he said.

I’m sorry she’s gone, but I won’t miss her. So his retirement, for me, is a good death“.
