Microsoft may debut new browser in Windows 10

As you all know by now Microsoft is currently working on a new version of Windows called Windows 10. The new OS is expected next year and it will supposedly bring a ton of new features that should fix the damage done by Windows 8. Up until this moment we have heard of wide platform compatibility, voice commands, a new Start menu and more but apparently Windows 10 will also bring a new web browser and yes – this will not be Internet Explorer.

There’s no official confirmation of this news by Microsoft as of now but numerous reports online suggest Windows 10 users will be treated with a web browser that is entirely new. Called Spartan, which is just a code name as you may expect, the new browser will be lightweight and will look a lot like browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. The technologies behind Spartan will also include Microsoft’s Chakra JavaScript engine and the Trident rendering engine but apart from these two the browser will be written from scratch.

Internet Explorer users should not despair – Windows 10 will not bring the end of IE – instead the new OS will come with both IE and Spartan, which of course will debut under a different brand name. We may have more information on Spartan on January 21 when Microsoft will have its big Microsoft 10 event.
