Inori Aizawa (Chinese and Japanese: 藍澤 祈, Aizawa Inori) is a character that personifies Internet Explorer.
In response to a post by artist Danny Choo from March 6 2013 depicting personifications of Safari, Chrome and Firefox, the Collateral Damage Studios published two days later on their Facebook and Tumblr account a first work depicting Inori (presented as IE-tan version 1 in the Facebook post), drawn by artist WaHa, with the goal to get the Microsoft's attention.
The attempt was successful and soon after a representative from Microsoft Asia-Pacific approached the studio, and Inori became an official marketing material of the company. It is unclear when exactly she received the name of Inori Aizawa.
