Microsoft Edge Is The New Name of Project Spartan

For quite a while now we have known Microsoft’s new web browser that replaces Internet Explorer and is shipping with Windows 10 as Project Spartan. Microsoft has finally got rid of the codename and has officially named the browser Microsoft Edge. The new name matches up with its rendering engine Edge.

Microsoft Edge will have many new features compared to Internet Explorer. One of the best is that both HTML and Javascript extensions are supported. This means that extensions from both Chrome and Firefox can be easily ported. This will mean there will be a great extension community from the start. Microsoft’s new personal assistant will be integrated heavily into the browser. There will also be customizable tab groupings and a new tab page as well.

Microsoft has released a new video showing off some of these features.
