Microsoft builds new browser – Microsoft builds a new browser with Windows 10

We’ve already heard lots of stories about Windows 10. Yes, new update is Microsoft builds a new browser with Windows 10, but still we need to wait till January 2015 to get clear data.

According to ZDNet’s sources Microsoft is building a completely a new browser to replace the global but oft-maligned Internet Explorer. We knew that there’s been talk for a while that Microsoft was going to make some big changes to Internet Explorer in the Windows 10 time frame, making IE “Spartan” look and feel more like Chrome and Firefox browsers.

New Browser – Spartan

Now It just turns out that what’s actually happening is Microsoft is building a new browser, codenamed Spartan, which is not IE 12. Spartan is just a code-name at this point of time. But we are not sure what Microsoft plans to call this new browser the time of this browser’s debuts.

This new Windows browser is being called “Spartan” and it seems completely new browser. Although just heard that Spartan is not based on Internet Explorer at all. But we need to wait to get an announcement from Microsoft.

Preview builds of Windows 10 have included a desktop version of Internet Explorer, though granted an old version that was always bound to be replaced in future Windows 10 builds. Microsoft creating a new browser from scratch would explain why they haven’t fit a new version into any Windows 10 previews so far.

Though Spartan will reportedly use Microsoft’s Chakra JavaScript and Trident engines rather than the common WebKit, just like IE does, and Windows 10 may actually ship with both Spartan and the existing version of Internet Explorer 11 (or one slightly updated) for backward compatibility’s sake.

As said earlier, “Spartan” for now is just a codename, but we may find out exactly and wait for some time that what the new Windows browser will be called at Microsoft’s impending January event.
