Microsoft's New Browser Spartan, It will be Lighter, Faster, and More Flexible than Internet Explorer (IE)

Without Internet Explorer browser, you will not be able to download other browsers. Sounds funny, but it is true. While IE browser  has a poor reputation both developers and users, Microsoft unveiled its new browser, created from scratch, codenamed Spartan.

This new fast and lightweight browser will be formally debuted and unveiled on January 21, 2015 along with Microsoft's Windows 10 shows off in Redmond, Washington.

According to PCWorld, instead of revamping Microsoft's Internet Explorer for the launching of its Windows 10, it is started to create a new browser dubbed as Spartan.

Spartan could kill Internet Explorer?

Spartan could ship alongside with Internet Explorer 11 in Windows 10, but its purpose is to do-over marketing for Internet Explorer — to get away from its legacy.

Technical for Spartan

Spartan browser will use Microsoft's Chakra JavaScript Engine and Microsoft's Trident rendering engine (not Webkit). Where did the codenamed originated, by the way?
  • I think the word "Trident". It is a three-pronged spear. It comes from the Greek (although it has in Hindu and Roman Mythology) . It is the weapon of Poseidon. But whatever it is, Microsoft will eventually tell where it comes from.
Spartan is a lightweight browser and it will look and feel more like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. It will also support extensions.

This browser will be available on desktop and mobile devices in Windows 10.

Microsoft hasn't provided any details about the event on January 21, 2015.
