Microsoft to replace IE with new browser codenamed Project Spartan

Software giant Microsoft has recently hinted that it is replacing its Internet Explorer (IE) web browser with a fast and flashy new browser, codenamed Project Spartan. The IE browser has been Microsoft’s longtime web browser, which has been a staple of the Internet for the last nearly twenty years.

The recent hint by Microsoft that the IE browser has hit the end of the line, and will be substituted by Project Spartan, comes after a January confirmation by Microsoft executives that a new Web browser was been developed by the company for its forthcoming Windows 10 operating system.

The new Project Spartan web browser has been built by Microsoft specifically for a new era of mobile devices. The browser will run on personal computers, tablets, as well as smartphones.

According to the details shared by Microsoft executives back in January, the features of the Project Spartan browser will be adapted to the present-day Internet. The new browser will not only focus on reading, but will also make allowance for tools such as the integration of Microsoft’s voice-activated digital assistant – ‘Cortana - and annotation of Web pages.

Revealing that Microsoft is “right now researching what the new brand, or the new name, for our browser should be in Windows 10,” Chris Capossela – chief of Marketing at Microsoft - said at a conference in Atlanta this week: “We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we also have a new browser called Project Spartan.”
