    Microsoft confirms the death of Internet Explorer

    Microsoft has officially confirmed the impending retirement of its Internet Explorer web browser and its replacement with Project Spartan.

    Criss Capossela, Microsoft’s marketing chief, said: “We’re now researching what the new brand, or the new name, for our browser should be in Windows 10.”

    Capossela explained:

    “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.”

    It's about time.. MS needs a fresh and new browser and IE was just not cutting it anymore, IMO.

    I'll miss IE. Spartan looks like Chrome, I already have that too, but.... Dammit I prefer IE!

    Years ago IE was a bit crappy, but I can't see what's wrong with it now. I use Safari, Chrome, Firefox and IE and I really can't find a problem with IE.

    Well, there are websites that don't work with IE and the developers are not going to do any work to fix the issues. I took a class that IE would not work with the coding/grading too.

    I am , how can they remove I.E. if IE is a part of the Operating systems Microsoft said it can't be done? I know a lot of software depends on I.E. being installed. Including some virus protection programs. I wonder how that going to work.
