Despite the fact that many complains about the slow, but popular browser, Internet Explorer, there are still who use this.
Example are huge companies like banks, call centers and a lot more.
So, if Microsoft decided to pull this browser out, many will still suffer?
Well, it’s true, Microsoft announced that the latest version of Windows won’t be equipped with IE anymore. The good news, however, is that a new and they claimed, a faster browser is on the way.
The Microsoft said the browser is currently called the Project Spartan.
“We’re now researching what the new brand, or the new name, for our browser should be in Windows 10,” Microsoft’s marketing chief Cris Capossela said at a conference. “We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we’ll also have a new browser called Project Spartan, which is cade named Project Spartan. We have to name the thing.”
Thomas Nigro, a developer of a company that is a partner to Microsoft was one of the first person to announce this.
“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,” said Nigro via his Twitter account.

According to reports, Microsoft will remove Internet Explorer after continuous complaints that it is slow and buggy since its release in 1995. The company opted to change the name to separate the current browser from “negative perceptions that no longer reflect reality.”
The company has yet to announce any specific date to when the new browser to appear as well as the release of Windows 10. But, there are copies that are being shipped for selected people to test.
