Browser vendors:

Several browser developers have provided information on the IDNwikis about how to use IDNs in their browser. If you have visted the IDNwiki (http://idn.icann.org) and carried out evaluations but not received the result you anticipated it could be because you need to make some local user configuration changes. The information provided by the browser developers will help you do so.

I’m sure that MSIE head office is scared everytime they see numbers like that from the Chinese market (7 to 1). Ouch! Very well broken down data.

See, there is so much Chinese people care about the test of ICANN,
MSIE7 will help IDN name to be popular domain name.
