Internet Explorer Is Being Replaced

Internet Explorer is heading the way of the dinosaurs. For 19 years Internet Explorer has been Microsoft’s default browser, helping Internet users around the world work on their patience. Now the Microsoft browser is finally being replaced. 

Microsoft’s marketing chief, Chris Capossela, announced the software company is replacing IE with a new default browser with the launch of Microsoft 10. “We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we’ll also have a new browser called Project Spartan, which is codenamed Project Spartan. We have to name the thing,” Capossela said in a press video released by The Verge.

As technology improved, IE lost users to newer, faster, and more user-friendly browsers like Firefox and Chrome. The browser is notorious for its simple design, and moving slower than molasses in January. The historic browser has become the joke of the Internet amongst IE defectors.

IE is slow joke

IE wasn’t always a joke though. For years the Internet browser reigned supreme as the number one browser used. Despite the endless complaints, it wasn’t until 2014 that Google Chrome surpassed IE.


Project Spartan was announced earlier this year and provides users with a whole new look and Internet experience.

There is still no official word from Microsoft that they plan to completely kill off IE. It will continue to be offered on select Microsoft 10 computers, but assuming Spartan takes off after its launch later this year, it seems inevitable that Internet Explorer will finally shut down.
