Microsoft releasing a new browser ‘Spartan’, Window 10 Consumer Preview Slated for January

Microsoft is building a new browser codenamed ‘Spartan’ that is lightweight and might be released with Windows 10.

For that matter, Internet Explorer has been around for a while, and which started with zero market share only to dominate the market in a short span of time. Of course, thanks to Firefox, it has faced decline again which has only been made worse by the speedy Chrome.

What is clear is that the reputation of Internet Explorer is tarnished but Microsoft, with Spartan, intends to resurrect its market share with Windows 10 that will be deployed on PC, tablets as well as smartphones.

What experts believe is that Internet Explorer’s rendering engine will be used but will be more suited to a new browsing experience that shifts away from the traditional desktop browsing experience.

In fact, Microsoft has no choice but to do this if they want Windows 10 to be used across all types of platforms.

As most people are aware, the second half of January will be focused on Microsoft where the preview of Windows 10 for consumers will be expected for release. Given the pressure, a failure to impress will inevitably ensure a drop in momentum that has been built around the new operating system over the past year.

That said, a new browsing tool could definitely get more people interested in its new platform. Of course, what remains to be seen is what will happen to Internet Explorer’s long-term market share if it fails to revamp the aging browser.
