Microsoft has announced that their increasingly unpopular web browser Internet Explorer will be phased out to create a new standard on Windows 10. It will be replaced by Project Spartan as Windows 10’s primary browser. Microsoft will still include Internet Explorer in some versions of Windows 10 for the sake of compatibility, but the goal of the company is to make a better browser that will help improve the image of the Microsoft as a whole. The company is also still trying to come up with a final name for the new browser. Microsoft’s marketing chief Chris Capossela had this to say:
“We’re now researching what the new brand, or the new name, for our browser should be in Windows 10. We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we’ll also have a new browser called Project Spartan, which is codenamed Project Spartan. We have to name the thing,” Chris Capossela at Microsoft Convergence.
Despite all of Microsoft’s efforts, they really could never get Internet Explorer’s reputation back out of the overall extremely negative. Thankfully, Project Spartan seems to be a step in the right direction that has a lot of Windows users excited. Microsoft clearly sees the need to separate themselves from the Internet Explorer brand as quickly as possible. Hopefully they can improve their image and services with Windows 10 and Project Spartan.by
