Microsoft may finally get rid of the much-maligned Internet Explorer and bring in a new web browser as they introduce Windows 10. The new browser, code named 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.
The new browser “Spartan” will look and feel more like that of Firefox and Google Chrome.
Thomas Nigro, a Microsoft Student Partner lead and developer of the modern version of VLC a media playing app, claimed on Twitter earlier this month that he heard Microsoft was building a brand-new browser.
“Ok so Microsoft is about to launch a new browser that’s not Internet Explorer and will be the default browser in Windows 10. Wow,” he tweeted.
“Spartan” will be considered a “lightweight” browser, and is actually going to be made available on both the desktop and mobile devices in Windows 10.
