This is not exactly true. Only some money/tax/government related Korean
web sites are inaccessible with non-IE browsers. Their security software
details are regulated by the government so they are (practically) forced
to use active-x based softwares. (Even Google AdWords Korean page is
using an active-x control for credit card operation.)

So in Korea, Firefox is good enough except for these serious tasks.
Well, most people use web for fun. :)
