Microsoft Edge

Microsoft has today announced the name of its Project Spartan web browser, which was a codename up until today. Spartan will be known from this point onwards as Microsoft Edge, and will be the default browser in Windows 10.

For those who don’t know, Edge includes new annotating features, as well as Cortana integration and more. Microsoft Edge is also replacing Internet Explorer, although IE will be present in Windows 10 too for those who need it for compatibility reasons.

Microsoft Edge is the company’s new browser, giving browsing the web a breath of new life. Furthermore, Microsoft Edge will use an updated version of the ‘e’ logo which is widely known for Internet Explorer.
