The successor to Internet Explore is going to be officially called Microsoft Edge


Microsoft just announced today during the 2015 Build conference in San Francisco, CA that the new name for their browser which they’ve been calling “Project Spartan” will be officially titled Microsoft Edge. The Edge naming may not surprise many as it’s the same name given to the new rendering engine (EdgeHTML) that Microsoft is using for its Windows 10 browser.

While Windows 10 will be using this new browser, Microsoft will not be retiring its popular Internet Explore (IE) browser for older versions of Windows and other enterprise users.
