What will the IE7 test domains be?

OK.

Joe Blow average IE7 user starts using it, and is informed that it works for IDN's.

What do people think will be the most likely domains they will type in to try out the IDN capabilities?

[search].com ?
[sex].com?

Or will they go for transliterations of popular sites like Google or Yahoo?

Or maybe the correct term for a popular site in their country that's been forced to use an ASCII domain for years?

Re: What will the IE7 test domains be?

I believe the top searches would be game.com, music.com and job.com in various languages IMHO.

Re: What will the IE7 test domains be?

My bet is the test domains would highly correlate to the searches with the highest OVT (or equivalent) scores in a particular country.

One the other hand, once they see it works, resolves, there is a page and URL in their own language, they will test the hell out of everything :-)

I believe that the first thing that a new user will do with IE7 is type in "yahoo" "google" or "amazon" in their native language or whatever is the most popular shopping site or portal in their country. In Japan, Rakuten and Yahoo for sure.

I hope they put big notice on IE7 that says "Try searching for your favorites in your native language". And maybe an info box "All about IDNs"
