Internet Explorer’s ‘tomb’ created in this country, a photo that went viral worldwide

Internet Explorer monument goes viral in South Korea 

Software mastermind spent a month designing monument with obituary ‘ He was a good tool to download other cybersurfers ’ 

For Jung Ki- youthful, a South Korean software mastermind, Microsoft Corp's decision to retire its Internet Discoverer web cybersurfer marked the end of a quarter- century love- hate relationship with the technology. 

To commemorate its demise, he spent a month and,000 won($ 330) designing and ordering a monument with Explorer's" e" totem and the English obituary" He was a good tool to download other cybersurfers." 

After the keepsake went on show at a cafe run by his family in the southern megacity of Gyeongju, a print of the headstone went viral. 

Microsoft gauged down support for the formerly universal Internet Discoverer on Wednesday after a 27- time run, to concentrate on its faster cybersurfer, Microsoft Edge. 

Jung said the keepsake showed his mixed passions for the aged software, which had played such a big part in his working life. 

" It was a pain in the a **, but I would call it a love- hate relationship because Explorer itself formerly dominated an period," he told Reuters. 

 He said he set up it took him longer to make sure his websites and online apps worked with Explorer, than with other cybersurfers. 

But his guests kept asking him to make sure their websites looked good in Explorer, which remained the dereliction cybersurfer in South Korean government services and numerous banks for times. 

Launched in 1995, Explorer came the world's leading cybersurfer for further than a decade as it was whisked with Microsoft's Windows operating system that camepre-installed in billions of computers. 

But it started losing out to Google's Chrome in the late 2000s and came a subject of innumerous internet memes, with some inventors suggesting it was sluggish compared with its rivals. 

Jung said he'd meant to give people a laugh with the monument, but was still surprised about how far the joke went online. 

"That is another reason for me to thank the Explorer, it has now allowed me to make a world- class joke," he said. 

"I lament that it's gone, but will not miss it. So its withdrawal, to me, is a good death."
