Internet Explorer Goes Anime With a Magical Girl Transformation

Internet Explorer 11: The first web browser to become very, very sad if you run a search for tentacle porn.

ADD: Please don't run a search for tentacle porn. I don't want to be held responsible.

I just like fire-type Pokémon, sorry.
Also, the "magical girl anime"-stuff isn't going to endear IE to me - not that I'm the target demographic, I guess; just saying.
Like the robots, though! Also, what about that wasteland, eh? I'm guessing that's what the internet is supposed to be nowadays? Ruins and devastation, where only viruses and spam thrive, hiding in the cracks of long-deserted web-communities...

Oh yay, the annoying genki anime bullshit is spreading to search providers!

I'm in despair! Japan's confusing, alienating culture invading the west has left me in despair!

I'm still not letting my computer crash completely every other google search.

I see what you did there, Japan~

There are a handful of times I've used IE in the past few years. All of them involved either computers owned by friends that are so technologically slow it physically hurts (comp sci. student here), the school computers or downloading Chrome.

If it's less horrible, faster and more secure than Chrome, I might try it again.

Sorry IE. I will still use chrome until you actually make a half-decent browser that doesn't crash when you so much as look at it the wrong way and has a far less intrusive UI.

Oh, come on. We all know how this would look if it were real.

Congratulations. You have won the thread. Please enjoy this (imaginary) gift basket from Omaha State, and (also pretend) $50 gift certificate from Best Buy.

Was that a reference to robot chicken's wacky races/fast and furious parody?

Internet brofist.

I personally enjoy Firefox and Opera-tan more.

Edit: Oh and if one wishes to fight the darkside of the internet, one might be more successful at seeing the bottom of the mystical portal of endless void.

Lol, is this for real? Excuse me while I throw away my comouter and join the Amish.

So, when IE gets attacked, it/ she (or whatever) transforms and starts to blow shit up...
riiight and how do i defend my Computer from that?
I think i'll stick to FF, thank you.

Oh man, now this is an epic facepalm moment.

I feel so sad for Microsoft right now.

But I do love this kind of fucked up thing, so thanks for that MS, you put a smile on my face. I'm still never touching IE ever again though, its only use is for downloading other web browsers, that is its only function. A function that can easily be replaced and should be replaced by offering to install either firefox or chrome, and perhaps some other choices.

Seriously though, Microsoft, go fuck yourself.

A few years ago I would have happily joined in the IE-bashing but today, right now? Internet Explorer is a fine browser, just as clean and simple to use as Chrome and it evens loads up faster. Really, the only reason Chrome is my main is because of the abundant extensions available. Sounds like people are still bitter.

Yesss... yeessssss.... everything must be moe~!

Soon you will have nothing left! Enjoy the peace while you can!

Everyone knows that Opera-tan is the best, and if you don't know that it's only because you don't know Opera-tan. And that's forgivable.

Don't worry. I forgive you.

I don't like when corporations like microsoft display themselves as higher powers helping keep the world, or internet, safe.

The latest version of IE is actually pretty decent. They're finally catching up with the other browsers. I'm still sticking with Chrome but a lot of the IE hate out there is a tad outdated. (how's that for an advertising slogan? IE11 - finally we don't suck as much)

What we should really hate is that they don't support older versions of Windows, which is going to drag the much-needed Death of IE8 out far longer than it needs to be.

IE6 is effectively dead everywhere outside of China (finally) but IE8 is quickly becoming the new headache for web designers due to its complete lack of HTML5/CSS3 features.

I'm all for clever marketing, and this is really cute. It won't make me switch browsers, but it's clever nonetheless. (Can't wait to see lots of chrome, firefox, etc. clones appear on Deviantart xD)

Evil Smurf:
How does she fight 4chan anyway?

Not well, I can tell you that much. Just wait until they Rule 34 her, if they haven't already.

LoL does anyone remember back in the earlier stages of this when they used a pretty awesome Blues/dub-step song when dub-step was starting to become an actual thing. Even I muttered to my self "Nice try Microsoft" when that video was release, it all seemed so mysterious and cool. Funniest thing is that the media that Microsoft uses to promote their product is always really nice and shiny but people don't hesitate to detach such media from the crappy browser and just enjoy the subject for what it is.

"used to be a clumsy, slow and awkward girl" and has since matured

Prefer Gen Urobutchi's interpretation of magical girls.

the funny thing is that she is probably already on the dark side of the internet, namely the rule 34 site.

I feel like the minority by saying that was AWESOME! o.o I don't like IE, oh no, not a god damn chance. But this was might respectable, I liked it a lot~ Music was good, animation was decent, and just... Wow. Not bad guys~ Still not using your shit browser though :3

This si my second time watching this, but I noticed something, in case nobody else has heard it, I have to mention, at 1:19, a robot makes a faint Wilhelm scream. Lawl.

But yeah, this is really cool.

Cpu46:
So was I the only one that heard a faint Wilhelm scream in there, shortly after the transformation scene but before the IE beam spam?

Okay, somebody beat me to it. :D Still love that it came out of a robot's mouth. Or speaker...

That happens to be the primary reason why I'm clinging to Firefox. It's the only browser to offer a spell checker in my native language; Chrome has a very limited selection of languages, compared to Firefox.

That's a fair point I've never even thought about. I know which browser to use now when I'm typing Korean lol.

You can't get me to get rid of Firefox, even if you wave a cute anime girl in front of me Microsoft.

I like my internet the way I have it now.

It's already happened.

Wait, they themselves call their mascot "prayer" and "indigo swamp"?!

...at least they have humour self awareness.
