Microsoft killing off IE

Post by PaulB »

According to this article Internet Explorer will be disappearing (at least as a brand).

Nah:
"We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we’ll also have a new browser called Project Spartan (...)

Thanks, Joe.

A change of direction: Spartan won't switch to the Internet Explorer engine to display websites that depend on it - users will have to start Internet Explorer 11 to view such websites. (And yes - Internet Explorer 11 will be available in Windows 10)
Best wishes,
Hans

Microsoft has made it clear that Spartan is the future. IE11 will not change much if at all for Win10.
