When Windows 10 launches late 2015, it is rumored that it will no longer include website browser Internet Explorer. Instead of revamping IE, a new report claims Microsoft plans to start from scratch with a new browser, dubbed “Spartan.” However, it’s not yet clear whether the same name could be used for the final app or not.
Reports say that it will be a “lightweight” browser that looks and feels more like the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers. With Firefox and Chrome having so much of the desktop market Internet Explorer is no longer the force it once was. Before it handled about over 90 percent of all web traffic on desktop and laptop machines, but according to research outfit Net Applications, its share has now dropped to 58 percent and on mobile, its share is about 2 percent.
