    Windows 10's speedy new Project Spartan browser will ditch Internet Ex


    Microsoft hasn't quite made it official, but a Microsoft executive recently came the closest yet to confirming that Project Spartan—the primary browser in Windows 10—will not be named Internet Explorer.

    During Microsoft’s Convergence conference in Atlanta on Monday, Microsoft’s marketing chief Chris Capossela pretty much admitted that the name Internet Explorer was on its way out, as first reported by The Verge.

    “We’re now researching what the new brand, or the new name, for our browser should be in Windows 10,” Capossela said. "We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we’ll also have a new browser called Project Spartan, which is codenamed Project Spartan. We have to name the thing."

    Alongside Project Spartan, Microsoft will also release Internet Explorer 11 as a legacy option primarily for enterprises with applications and internal sites designed for Microsoft’s longtime browser.

    I thought that was the goal from the start. MS wanted to cut all ties to IE due to it's poor reputation.

    Although I think that a total cut in all ties to IE is not what's gonna happen, I do believe that the concept of Spartan is really innovative and interesting. Just wondering when I'll be able to try it out !

    Where's my new BUILD M$ ?

    Yup I hope they fix the poor extension support, lack of updates and low compatibility for me to switch over.
