Microsoft announced that its new browser in Windows 10 will be called Microsoft Edge. When the plans for a new browser were announced back in January, it was initially known as Project Spartan. The official name is a reference to the new rendering engine (EdgeHTML) that Microsoft is using for Windows 10. Microsoft Edge is being called, “a browser built for doing.” It contains several unique features including built-in Cortana support, built-in reading, sharing and note taking, and a minimalist design.

 

Microsoft Edge will replace Internet Explorer as the default browser when Windows 10 releases. Internet Explorer will become a legacy browser and updates will no longer be issued. Microsoft Edge will, when required, load in the older Internet Explorer engine for backwards compatibility.
