Re: Internet Explorer is almost gone by Rohan Kumar
There are still companies that require you to use their sites in Internet Explorer with compatibility mode (emulates either IE 7 or IE 5, depending on some properties of the markup/headers).
According to Maeil Economy News (Korean only), Korean Government websites including…
- Korea Expressway Corp. (state-owned corporation)’s procurement system [my note: as of 2022-06-27, they launched new IE-less system],
- Korea Water Resources Corp. (also state-owned corporation) ’s procurement system [WARNING: accessing this website will automatically attempt to download some .exe file] (seems like I can do stuff via Firefox 101 as of this post),
- Ministry of Land and Transportation’s construction paperwork digitization systems [my note: as of 2022-06-27, they have plans to avoid IE dependency by 2022-11, but for now you need to use IE to submit something], and
- Ministry of Health and Welfare’s Welfare facility information DB [my note: they just tell people to use IE mode of MS Edge]
So indeed there are some IE lovers and they are likely to stick around until at least end of this year.
