This morning, Joe Belfiore took to the stage at Build 2015 to share more about the next chapter in our story for Windows 10, including revealing more about “Project Spartan,” our new default browser for Windows.
We’re excited to share Joe’s announcement that Project Spartan’s official name is Microsoft Edge. You’ll see this name coming in future Insider Preview builds of Windows 10, and coming to our web developer resources very soon.
As part of our focus on innovating to make the Web more productive than ever, we’re introducing an all-new New Tab Page and brand new web-based extension model for Microsoft Edge – you can learn more about these in Terry’s post, “Welcoming Developers to Windows 10,” on the Windows Blog.
Modern.IE and the IEBlog
Microsoft Edge is the future of our browser strategy, and accordingly we’ll be archiving the IEBlog starting this week as we refresh our Web properties with the new brand. Tune in to the Microsoft Edge Web Summit for more!
