The Internet Explorer name is going away after many many years. Microsoft has announced that Microsoft Edge will be the name of their new browser that previously had been codenamed Project Spartan. IE will still be available for enterprise customers, but for the rest of us, it will be Microsoft Edge and it will become the default browser in Windows 10. Project Spartan has garnered some good attention and people are actually happy to use it, unlike previous version of Internet Explorer which work well enough to download a new browser.

Microsoft first revealed its new browser plans back in January. Known as Project Spartan initially, Microsoft is revealing today that the company will use the Microsoft Edge name for its new browser in Windows 10. The Edge naming won’t surprise many as it’s the same moniker given to the new rendering engine (EdgeHTML) that Microsoft is using for its Windows 10 browser.
