Naver Launches New Browser Naver Whale

Naver has released its own web browser, called Whale, in an attempt to better compete with Google and Microsoft. The browser was made available to download on the 14th of March, with a mobile version expected to follow before the end of 2017. Users of Whale will be able to divide their window so that they can view and work within two separate sites at the same time. They will also have access to Naver's Papago system, which works in a similar way to Google Translate, by offering a translated version of an online document in the user's chosen language. Over the last few months, Naver has been beta testing the browser and collecting user feedback, as well as working to increase the browser's stability online.
