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.

I liked the name Spartan, but alas.

Naming a web browser "Spartan" is idealistic but doomed, as web browsers are fated to bloat. In a few years the jokes would be endless (picture a photoshopped obese Spartan).

You mean like Microsoft being on the Edge of a cliff? ;)
