Microsoft confirms Project Spartan will be default browser on Windows 10
American company Microsoft revealed last week that it plans to create a new brand for its upcoming browser for Windows 10 codenamed Project Spartan.
Microsoft on clarifying the role of Internet Explorer and Project Spartan in Windows 10, and has confirmed that the new Spartan browser will be the default browser for all Windows 10 customers.
While Microsoft revealed in January that its new rendering engine would power Spartan and Internet Explorer in Windows 10, the company says it is no longer planning to bring this to Internet Explorer.
The Verge quoted Kyle Pflug, Microsoft’s Project Spartan program manager as saying, “On Windows 10, Project Spartan will host our new engine exclusively.”
Pflug also said that the Internet Explorer 11 will remain fundamentally unchanged from Windows 8.1, continuing to host the legacy engine exclusively.
Microsoft says it has taken feedback from testers who were left confused over the role of two separate browsers in Windows 10.
Pflug further said that they feel that this change simplifies the role of each browser and Project Spartan is their future.
