Internet Explorer’s death gives birth to Spartan !!!
The multinational corporation Microsoft has recently announced at its Convergence Conference this week that it will phase out Internet Explorer and replace it with an all-new browser called Spartan with the upcoming release of Windows 10.
First released in the mid-1990s, Internet Explorer dominated the browser market at its peak in the early 2000s but was frequently associated with poor security and compatibility.
The news wasn’t exactly a surprise since Internet Explorer has been on a back bench of Web browsers for quite some time now.
A Microsoft developer blog clearly states that the new Spartan browser will be based on the relatively standards-compliant Internet Explorer 11.The result is, one hopes, a modern layout engine that adheres to modern standards.
Microsoft surely has a long way to go to improve their web browser performance but this recent news is certainly a step forward in the right direction.
The famous browser is to get a new name, which you will immediately start using, completely forgetting the old one and all its negative connotations.
