Microsoft to launch a new internet browser ‘Spartan’ for Windows 10

According to a report microsoft is ready to launch a brand-new internet browser for Windows 10 and It will be similar to Google chrome and Mozilla Firefox. After a case study, it has shown that people are not likely to use Internet Explorer because of its complexity, slow speed, and look. Though, Microsoft’s new version of Internet explorer are very good and fast but still Microsoft is failed to change the mentality of users about internet explorer.

According to a new report from Microsoft insider Mary J. Foley at Zdnet: The new browser will be similar to Google chrome and Mozilla Firebox by it’s look and feel. she says the new browser is code named “Spartan” . But it will not be an updated version of Internet explorer.

According to reports, new ‘Spartan’ browser will use Microsoft’s Chakra JavaScript engine and Trident rendering engine, is described overall as a “new, light-weight browser.”

So will it replace Internet Explorer?

No, The new ‘Spartan’ browser will not replace Internet Explorer, however, when it’s released as part of Windows 10 this year. Foley’s sources says that Windows 10 will come with Spartan and Internet Explorer, presumably for backward-compatibility functionality. According to report, Spartan will also support Windows 10 on mobile but this is unclear whether Spartan will be ported to Android and iOS or not .

This brand-new internet browser will definitely increase the excitement of people waiting for windows 10. It has already revealed that windows will come with virtual digital assistant Microsoft Cortana .

We may hear everything about Spartan browser on Microsoft’s Windows 10 event in January, which is called “The Next Chapter.” This event also promises some gaming news from Xbox boss Phil Spencer, who is one of the featured speakers.

  1. I will probably give this new browser a chance. I do worry that it could be another IE piece of junk. However, there could be a chance for major changes since the IE leader, Dean Hachamovitch, is leaving Microsoft after being with them for 24 years. Maybe a change of leadership will help things improve. Not holding my breath, but at least willing to give this new Spartan browser a chance.

    Windows 10 looks pretty nice from what I have seen of it so far. Downloaded the beta and played with it some on a desktop and a laptop, neither had a touchscreen. It ran smooth and I liked the new hybrid metro/original start menu.

    The transition from Windows 8 to 10 will be similar to the transition from xp to vista to 7. XP was a good stable OS that handled good among users. Vista was a piece of junk. Win7 was a good stable mix between XP and Vista. Win7 was stable and took into consideration what users wanted while giving them some new stuff as well. Windows 8 was Microsoft trying to forcefeed everyone an OS built for touchscreen when most users do not have a touchscreen on their home desktop or laptop. Now Windows 10 is a bit of a hybrid between 7 and 8. Letting you have the option of playing with the start menu meant for touchscreen machines, or stick to a more traditional start menu if you either have no touchscreen or just hate that huge fullscreen start menu.

  2. I liked the name Windows1. If they wanted to really break away from synchronous releases this would have been a good choice. it certainly would leave everybody wondering what the next one is called?
