North Korea's Naenara Web Browser: It's Weirder Than We Thought
Naenara Browser is the DPRK’s version of Firefox that comes built into Red Star OS, the official operating system of North Korea. I recently got my hands on Naenara Browser version 3.5. My first impression in playing with it is that this is one ancient version of Firefox. Like maybe more than a half dozen major revisions out of date? It’s hard to tell for sure in cursory checking but the menus remind me of something I used to use 5+ years ago. That’s not too surprising; it’s tough to have a browser and update it all the time, especially with such a small team devoted to the project, as I’m sure they have a lot of other things going on.
