Microsoft silently working on "spartan" web browser for Windows 10

2:51 PM

On January 21st, the next chapter event at Redmond, Microsoft may show off its new web browser codenamed "Spartan". Mary Jo Foley of zdnet in a report said " Microsoft is planning to roll out a new browser when it debuts Windows 10, according to sources. But IE isn't going completely away."

Adding more, she cited " It turns out that what's actually happening is Microsoft is building a new browser, codenamed Spartan, which is not IE 12 -- at least according to a couple of sources of mine.

Well, Thomas Nigro -- a Microsoft Student Partner lead and developer of the modern VLC, mentioned  in one his tweets, earlier this month, that Microsoft is working on a new browser and will be the default browser for Windows 10.

He tweeted:

Further, Spartan is still going to use Microsoft's Chakra JavaScript engine and Microsoft's Trident rendering engine(not Webkit). Also, it will come with the same look and feel as Chrome and Firefox.

Spartan will not replace IE-12, but it will be there alongside.
