In a personification of the browser Internet Explorer, on the occasion of ongoing Anime Festival Asia (AFA) 2013, Microsoft has posted a video of a character named Inori Aizawa, who is now also the mascot for the Internet Explorer browser. It’s an anime, and Inori is a female character, who had a terrifying past and is now all geared up to fight the world.
In the video, Inori who likes surfing the internet, karaoke, the new coding language HTML5 is fighting against the dark side of the internet – malware and online bullies, who seems to appear as drones. In her elegant and typical wardrobe, the logo of Windows can be seen on her skirt.
The personified web-browser, tells about her past,
My name is Inoriand I’m an anime personification for Internet Explorer! Shall we explore the web? When I was younger, I used to be a clumsy, slow and awkward girl. However, just like the story of ugly duckling, people told me that I have really matured and changed over the years. I feel confident in my abilities now, and I’m eager to show you what I can do. Why don’t you get to know me a little better?
There is no denying that Internet Explorer had a bad patch. They were once a very good browser, but ever since other 3rd party alternative cropped up, Microsoft sort of missed on polishing its web-browser esp. IE6. But things have changed drastically over the last couple of years. The browser we all loved to hate has really grown stronger. The newest version, Internet Explorer 11 is secure, swift, light and stable.
You can get to know more about her on her Facebook page. You can watch the video here. There is also a special cuter version of Internet Explorer dedicated to her, which you can download from here.
