Internet Explorer is going to be replaced with a brand new Spartan browser in the upcoming Windows 10 version. And albeit Windows 10 is a free upgrade to Windows 7, many of them will probably restrain from upgrading. And if they will do so, then they won’t be able to get the newest browser.
The information has been made official on the Twitter account of IE Dev Chat (Internet Explorer Developer Chat) who said the following:
No current plans for Spartan on Win7. Win7 users will be able to upgrade to Win10 for free as you probably know 🙂
Even so, at the moment we don’t know whether Microsoft will make it available on non-Windows operating systems too. But if we take a look at the company’s recent moves, then there’s a big chance that it will do that. After all, Windows 10 will be free for pirated versions and Microsoft Office is already for mobile users, so why not go with the same strategy for the browsers, as welll?
Speaking of bringing the browser to other platforms, the team said this:
“We don’t have anything planned at the moment – we’re completely focused on building a great browser for Windows 10.”
So, what do you think, should Microsoft bring Spartan to other operating systems, as well? Do leave your comment below and let us know.
