Windows 10's Project Spartan Browser Gets Renamed Microsoft Edge

Microsoft unveiled Project Spartan, a brand new Web browser for Windows 10, earlier this year. It has a new rendering engine, said to be faster and less resource intensive than Internet Explorer, and would better compete with the likes of Chrome and Firefox. Project Spartan is Microsoft's browser for Windows 10, with Internet Explorer being relegated to legacy duty, but until now it didn't have an official name. During the Build conference, it was revealed just what Project Spartan would be called: Microsoft Edge. It is a fitting name considering the new rendering engine is called EdgeHTML, and a welcome change from the past with IE. Its logo is a familiar design, but one that should help with the acclimation to the new browser. Edge will be faster, and will also have some nice built-in features, like Cortana for voice commands, digital ink annotation, and a reading list, among others. It has a sleek and minimalist design, much like Chrome and Firefox, and now should be a true competitor to those other browsers.

Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge will arrive sometime this summer, potentially July, although an exact date still is not known. Once Microsoft reveals that information, you can be sure to find it here.
