What is Internet Explorer
If you don’t know what Internet Explorer is; it is what you might be using right now to view this website.
Microsoft Internet Explorer is in popular terms the worlds oldest web browser, the window to the internet and web pages. For the past 20 years Internet Explorer has pioneered and come bundled with the Windows Operating Systems to help us see the world wide web.
But Microsoft has shocked the online world by informing us they will soon stop supporting and making Internet Explorer. Instead they will be introducing and are creating a whole new browser built form the ground up named Spartan.
Project Spartan will be released as the native browser in the new and upcoming Microsoft Operating System, Windows 10.
Although it is still in development mode Microsoft have release a pre-release beta version for Windows Insiders to download and try.
Although no one know for sure what Spartan will offer, insiders have said it will:
- provide integration with Cortana (Microsoft’s new digital agent software).
- have distraction free reading mode.
- a web note mode where you can add notes and allow your friends to see them.
Affecting the Future
Microsoft have also come out and said, “Spartan will not support older web sites’. Therefore, web masters who run older sites will need to be updated or risk not being seen.
However for this reason Microsoft will still provide Internet Explorer 10 to support these older sites.
