Internet Explorer Will Finally Be Replaced

Internet Explorer came out in the mid-1990s and has since been the default browser for Microsoft Windows users. While some are still loyal to the browser, most others have moved to Firefox or Google Chrome - mainly due to the browser’s unreliability and poor security. In some cases, people even began calling it “Internet Exploder.” 

I'm sure some of us may think it’s about time, but others may be surprised to learn that the browser they’ve grown accustomed to will soon be replaced. However, since some enterprises still require it for legacy websites that use older technology specifically for IE, it won’t disappear completely.

Microsoft made the announcement on Monday, saying that they would include it with the release of Windows 10. Currently, they’re still trying to come up with a name for it, but for now it’s been code named “Project Spartan.”

Windows 10 is supposed to be released later this year, but early versions can be downloaded by members of Microsoft’s Windows Insider Program. Spartan is expected to be added to a preview version soon.
