Microsoft is building a new web browser codenamed Spartan that will debut alongside Windows 10, reports ZDNet.

What's actually happening is Microsoft is building a new browser, codenamed Spartan, which is not IE 12 -- at least according to a couple of sources of mine. Thomas Nigro, a Microsoft Student Partner lead and developer of the modern version of VLC, mentioned on Twitter earlier this month that he heard Microsoft was building a brand-new browser. Nigro said he heard talk of this during a December episode of the LiveTile podcast.

Spartan is said to use Microsoft's Chakra JavaScript engine and Trident rendering engine but it will reportedly look and feel more like Chrome and Firefox. It will also support extensions. Apparently there are two different versions of Trident in the works, corroborating reports that the company has two different browsers.

ZDNet's sources say Spartan is not IE 12; rather, it is a new light-weight browser. Windows 10 will reportedly ship with both Spartan and IE 11 and Spartan will also be available on mobile versions of the operating system.

The Spartan moniker is just a codename and could change before release. Users may catch a glimpse of it on January 21st when Microsoft plans to reveal additional Windows 10 features.

I rather have Mictosoft than appleGay. Apple is a gimmick, and safari is a joke, I prefer Mozilla is thevBest Browser, google chrome is the worse just as safari. Apple products are crap period. Toshiba is the best. Just look this up Toshiba click 2-in-1 13.3" Touch-Screen Laptop - Intel Core i7 - 8GB Memory - 128GB Solid State Drive - Satin Gold only $849 at BestBuy, way bettter than any apple device, windows 8.1 way better than that crappy yosemite that had ruines so many macbook pro laptops, just go to apple site: So there, yes apple is better at lying and doing crap, only fanboys ard so blind they don't see the snake going up their trousers. Keep feeding the gay community. Long live The King Gates, cause yours is dead.
