Internet Explorer looks shy, which makes sense if you think about all the rejection he has to face everyday. Poor guy.

These gijinka-style browser-tan personifications were all done by Deviantart's ROSEL-D, who, as you can see here, likes to draw these from time to time. They are all fairly low-key—especially when you compare them with other -tan characters, like, say, that magical girl personification of Internet Explorer, or the personification art of Jon Lock.

Here's the five browser-tan in all their glory. In case you can't tell, from top to bottom, they are Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari.

In an earlier piece, ROSEL-D imagines the five browser-tan as the cast of an anime:

That would be an interesting watch. Head over to ROSEL-D's Deviantart gallery for more.

Firefox would be an old geezer with a zimmer frame. He used to be an Olympic athlete back in the day.

Chrome would be a huge guy who just can't stop eating. He even eats your dinner right out of the oven while it's cooking, without opening the door!

IE would be the guy who is trying to be friendly even though he burned your house down a few years ago. No matter what he says, it's too hard to trust him.

Safari would be a hipster who always looks like he's in on every new trend, but he doesn't actually know anything in depth when you try to have a conversation.

Opera is a ghost. Poor opera.
