    Spartan now will be branded "Edge"


    New name for Spartan broswer...


    Microsoft announced the oficial name of its new browser during the opening day of its Build 2015 show.



    The final name is not "Spartan," which was the codename for the browser, as many had hoped and predicted. Instead, it's Microsoft "Edge." (The FraWin.com site reported yesterdaythis would be the case.)"It's the browser built for getting things done," is the new marketing slogan.

    Even though Microsoft officials have been adamant in insisting that Spartan is not Internet Explorer -- and, in fact, is such a different fork of that browser that it's something totally new -- the new name is still fairly close to IE.

    Changing the name will not make it better. That logo reminds me of the hammer & sicle used by The Soviet Union.

    I wonder how long MS will be allowed to use the name Edge?
