Internet Explorer: in South Korea there is a plaque to remember this

POZNAN, POL – JAN 30, 2020: Laptop computer displaying logo of Internet Explorer, a web browser developed by Microsoft and included in the Microsoft Windows line of operating systems

Jung Ki is a South Korean computer engineer who has decided to celebrate the farewell to Internet Explorer, the historic web browser of Windows PCs, in a very special way.

In South Korea there is a plaque to commemorate the farewell to Internet Explorer

The video released below from Reuters shows us the dedicated to Internet Explorer Microsoft’s historic web browser for Windows systems withdrawn from the market last June 15 after almost 28 years of honorable (and sometimes revisable) career. The project was commissioned by the computer engineer Jung Ki who spent over 300 euros for this particular tombstone. The epitaph accompanying the tombstone says it all: “It was a good tool for downloading other browsers.”

The tombstone was exhibited in a bar in Gyeongju (managed by the author’s brother). The unusual project quickly went viral, gaining a great deal of feedback online. According to Jung, the memorial is a testament to the conflicting feelings one has towards the browser, a software that, in one way or another, is part of the history of computing.

This could be just one of the many initiatives to remember the browser now out of the market and no longer usable. Here is the video dedicated to the tombstone of the now former Microsoft web browser:
