Microsoft recently announced its new Windows 10 Spartan web browser at its press event in Redmond, and the social media buzz on this one is hot. The reason for this being hot news is simply down to people asking if this will be the successor to Internet Explorer.
Even though it is not 100% clear, the new Windows 10 Spartan may possibly support Chrome extensions according to Neowin. The new Spartan browser will open more eyes because it will be able to run on desktop and mobile versions of Windows 10.
It is looking more promising the new browser from Microsoft will use Chrome extensions, which is perfect for developers. This will make it very easy indeed for developers to work with Spartan, why make new extensions when you can use what you already have to work with Spartan.
Majority of web users use Internet Explorer, but it is getting on a bit now and looks a little tiring. Many complain IE is just too slow, and this is a perfect opportunity for Windows 10 to shine with its Spartan browser.
IE will probably still stay there with Spartan working alongside it for now, but then how long will it take for it to replace Internet Explorer?
The new Windows 10 download will be free for Windows 7, 8/8.1 users during the first year of release, it will launch later this year where the preview is expected to end April 2015. No pricing details have yet been released by Microsoft, but it could be subscription based.
