Microsoft’s Internet Explorer must hold the record for the world’s most popular, yet equally most hated browser. So much so that the Redmond based technology company is allegedly working on a replacement.
According to reports, when Windows 10 launches (probably in 2015), it will come installed with 2 browsers – Internet Explorer 11, as well as a brand new one codenamed “Spartan”. This new browser will be lightweight and bear similarities with the more favoured browsers like Chrome or Firefox, including support for extensions.
It’s all mostly speculation for now but, if the reports are true, “Spartan”, which will be available for both the desktop and mobile versions of Windows, is scheduled to be showcased during Microsoft’s consumer presentation event on the 21st of January, 2015. Also, developers and enthusiasts who have the Windows 10 Technical Preview running will probably be able to try out Spartan come January.
