I misunderstood you. I'm sorry.

There's over 500 million Arabic speakers in the world, half of them native. These three first countries to allow Arabic domains have a total population of over 110 million.
Well when you put it in perspective, I guess it becomes harder to disagree, especially when I myself speak Arabic.

True, it will not be of use to most people. But it is a big, historic event in the world of the internet.

Thank you Kari for being patient with me. Being new in something and being illiterate in that is not fun for anybody.
Thanks again

It is a good development, but what happens to other people who cannot type in Arabic?

What happens to people who can not English?

I'm trying to keep my mind open, that's why I think Internet in your own language and alphabet should be part of global human rights. I'll bet you, as me, are using a localized keyboard, typing the web addresses using alphabet familiar to you.

According to what I've read today on the web, the first domains in Egypt using Arabic are going to be ministries and other government organisations, as well as local newspapers. IMO, it is a marvelous thing, giving more people an opportunity to use the net in their own language, with their own alphabet.

Of course I understand some people take this negative. The most stupid comment I've seen today can be seen here, read the first comment after the article. It just shows how we people tend to be too narrow minded.

Kari, I think you misinterpreted that comment. I also commented something similar because I do not read or speak Arabic; therefore I won't be going to that site. I do think think this is an historic advancement for the web.

Well - I'm really excited about this, as i cannot read Arabic, but i find that it opens up opportunities for those of us who fluently speak multiple languages. For example, i myself fluently speak Hindi and English, and i have set my Facebook page set to Hindi ( so all the text appears in Hindi - not Hindi English) Which i enjoy much more . Cant wait to see . India and in Hindi too :P
