It has been rumored that Microsoft was creating an all-new web browser dubbed ‘Spartan’ to ship with Windows 10, to replace the archaic and hated Internet Explorer browser. Well today, BGR got their hands on an image leak from the new browser
Internet Explorer has long been criticized by both developers and consumers alike for years. Microsoft’s unwillingness to conform the browser to interpret data like the popular browsers Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, has turned users off for years. It also didn’t help that they continued to support versions that were years old; that create a headache for developers.
Fortunately, it seems as if Microsoft finally listened. From the image that we have obtained, Spartan looks very light. It isn’t as cluttered as Internet Explorer and seems like it is very up-to-date.
According to BGR’s sources, ‘Spartan’ is only a codename for the new browser and it might not be the final name. It could stick though, Microsoft has always had an infatuation with their critically-acclaimed video game series Halo. They even named their Siri competitor Cortana which is a character from the popular video game series.
So, I wouldn’t be surprised when you boot up Windows 10 for the first time, you see Spartan web browser on the desktop.
