    Spartan/Edge


    Is the name of the new browser Spartan or is it Edge?

    Hello Frank,

    In the early builds up to build 10130 it was called "Project Spartan" while it was still in development.

    It's official name is 'Microsoft Edge", and will no longer be named 'Project Spartan" in the next build release.

    Here's some more info about all this if you like.

    Thanks, Shawn---I believe that I'll like it after I use it longer and get to know it. I was just about ready to ditch IE for something else so I'm glad that Edge came around.

    Yeah, it should get better once they turn on all the features for Microsoft Edge as well.
