ICANN is in the news with the new شبكة TLD, see http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-24637673
I am yet to see Arabic TLDs widely implemented, although most browsers are ready, even on iOS and Android which I tested with an Arabic URL. Any idea on why is the delay in implementing Arabic URL by content providers (newspapers, etc.) ? People in the region prefer Arabic websites, so I am wondering what’s stopping content providers from having Arabic URLs.
Also, anyone know if major portals, like Google or Yahoo, have implemented IDNs in any language for their URL ? Something like ياهو.شبكة (which translates to Yahoo.net , as I cannot find an equivalent to .com as an Arabic TLD).
