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.
While Redmond makes another attempt at a browser the rest of us can install Vivaldi, which actually does interesting and useful things while performing very well.
After the Visual studio announcement, I wonder if we’ll be seeing Microsoft Edge running on the Ubuntu Edge soon. XD
I agree, Spartan sounded better.
