Microsoft will kill off Internet Explorer this year

After almost 20 years, Microsoft will soon replace Internet Explorer. Microsoft’s marketing chief Chris Capossela revealed that the company is working on a new browser code-named Project Spartan, just to keep the Halo theme going.

The new browser will arrive in Windows 10 as an alternative to Internet Explorer. It will apparently be a stripped down and faster browser, which should be more suited to mobile devices. Project Spartan will be the main way that Windows 10 users access the web, as Microsoft tries to distance its web browser service from IE’s reputation and image.

Internet Explorer will still exist; Windows 10 will include a version of Internet Explorer, mainly for companies that have developed software to work with the browser. But for the rest of us, this is likely to be the end of the browser that…well, not know and love, but more use as a way to download another web browser of choice.
