Internet Explorer has had it rough for quite a few years. It is frequently joked about, and many will say that they only use it so that they can download another browser. Now, Microsoft looks set to put the final nail in its coffin, as the company is working on a new browser, codenamed Project Spartan, which will be released later this year.
Microsoft’s marketing chief Chris Capossela revealed that the company is working on a new browser, which will arrive in Windows 10. Project Spartan will be a stripped down and faster browser, which should be more suited to mobile devices.
Windows 10 is expected to arrive this summer. There is a strong Halo theme running through the upcoming Operating System between this codenamed browser and Microsoft’s virtual assistant, Cortana, who shares a name with one of the characters from the video game series.
Internet Explorer will still exist in some form. Windows 10 will still include a version of Internet Explorer, but it’s mainly for companies that have developed software to work with the browser. But for the rest of us, Project Spartan will be how we browse the internet, at least for the first time, on Windows 10.
In Short: Microsoft is working on a new web browser, codenamed Project Spartan, which will replace Internet Explorer in Windows 10.
