Do you believe in the butterfly effect, where a flap of a butterfly’s wing from Korea results in a windstorm half a year later in New York, Nations that do not change, or are afraid of new challenges will fall behind in the competition. Glosee Internet will be Korea’s dream and transformation. Glosee, the world sees Korea. Very first one, this is about Development background. In today’s global age, many people find information through internet. However, if they are not able to find the wanted information in Naver, Google, or other search portal sites, they give up trying and believe that such information does not exist. According to the statistics, Korean information takes up less than 3~ 5% of the entire database and the remaining 95% are found on foreign websites. While this does not guarantee that the wanted information will be found in a foreign website, it is true that the language barrier makes it difficult to even access the information. In order to solve this problem, we have newly developed Glosee Internet.
Next, Glosee, seeing the world in Korean
Glosee (Global + See) is a unique browser, which combines a normal internet browser with translation technology, in order to effectively search worldwide information in one’s mother tongue. Here are the characteristics of Glosee.
• You can directly search and translate English/Chinese/Japanese portals and search sites by searching only in Korean. Glosee allows you to search original information in any language, and reduces the search time by more than 1/5.
• Glosee only takes up 1.82kB memory space, making it a very light browser, and is 1.5 times faster than Internet Explorer. The speed difference may be up to 4~5 times, depending on the internet speed and the PC. In the case of Korea, I/E installs Active-X due to financial transactions and security reasons, thus Glosee has been inevitably based on I/E, but it has reduced the 4~500 web bugs that occur in Internet Explorer by half.
• Glosee’s personalized function that allows you to search 400 specialized sites by field enables you to find news or professional material effectively. This will be especially useful for professionals or those who need high quality information.
• Glosee’s User Interface(U.I.) is simple so that anyone can use it easily, and it has been designed so that you can navigate around the site just through clicking. Glosee has many functions such as office summon, disabling copy-protection, keyboard character input, screen capture, PC remote control, virus protection, and security-related functions, that create an optimal user environment.
• The translations that Glosee provides may be good enough for the most part, however, it still fails to fully satisfy all that is required by the user, such as the translation of website’s technical characteristics and terms. However, the developers of Glosee will provide world’s best translator within 1~2 years and the service will extend to include all the languages in the world.
• The diverse functions of Glosee will enhance the competitive edge for users on global information and reduce the information gap. Depending on the individual’s usage, it will help create employment, and increase economic productivity. On a larger scale, companies or nations may also use Glosee as a tool for growth.
And Metacus, search engine that surpasses Google.
Most portals or search sites use robots to collect and provide information and data. Despite this, each portal or search site fails to provide all the information in the same way. Glosee has improved upon this, and uses an external server search method to find information from all portals and websites, and eliminates any repetitions to display all results at once. This metacus search is suitable for the knowledge information-oriented future.
Platform changes the world.
Glosee’s dream is to make internet as flat as possible, where nobody is controlled by authority or capital, where nobody feels suppressed or neglected. We strive to give equal opportunities to everyone and provide an environment that will give as much benefit as possible according to one’s efforts. We hope by making a platform and building an information hub, we can change the unfair internet ecosystem and make a fair IT world available for everyone. That is, first building a portal for local governments and starting a new internet, then the separation of news and media from portals and the horizontal networking of industry and market, and lastly creating an open world as knowledge oriented power nation.
About future vision, Glosee’s dream reaches far beyond the boundaries of Korea. We wish for everyone in this world to have new dreams and bring change to their lives through Glosee. We wish for a world without the restrictions of language, where everyone can share and exchange information and communicate with each other freely. With a multilingual browser, all eyes will be on Korea, and with the mobile version of it, we may not be able to surpass Microsoft or Google by size, but we will certainly show superior technology and create new values.
Proposal. Lastly, we ask of all users of Glosee – do not keep this information to yourself, for personal competitive edge. It is not wrong, but it is a big obstacle in Glosee’s development. Additionally, not being able to let go of your old habits (using only one specific browser or portal) may result in you, or the people around you, to fall behind in the unlimited competition of today’s global age.
