Internet Explorer, Microsoft Corporation’s vulnerable but often despised web browser, may be on its way out, it has been claimed.Microsoft’s almost 20 years old Web browser Internet Explorer is gonna be replaced soon.
The new browser, codenamed at this point as Spartan, will be unveiled on January 21, in the company’s hometown of Redmond, Washington, when Microsoft shows off Windows 10 for the first time.
Windows 10 will ship with both Internet Explorer 11 and Spartan, though the former is expected to stick around for backwards compatibility only. The new browser will be available for both desktop and mobile devices running Windows 10.
Ok so Microsoft is about to launch a new browser that’s not Internet Explorer and will be the default browser in Windows 10,” tweeted Thomas Nigro, a Microsoft Student Partner lead and developer of the modern version of VLC.
So far it’s unclear whether Spartan will be portable on non-Windows systems, such as Android, iOS, or OS X, but if it is actually imitating Chrome and Firefox, two of the most popular browsers out there.The new browser is currently under development.So wait for Windows 10.
