The recent Microsoft Convergence conference saw Microsoft officially making the announcement that they will be letting go of their long-standing default browser, Internet Explorer.

According to E-News, Marketing Chief of Microsoft, Chris Capossela and his company will replace the browser with a new unnamed browser, code named ‘Project Spartan’.

The new browser is still in the midst of development and will be added along with Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 10.

“We’re now researching what the new brand, or the new name, for our browser should be in Windows 10,” said Capossela.

However, Internet Explorer will not be totally forgotten just yet. Microsoft told Adweek that it will still exist in some versions of Windows 10 for other consumers who still require legacy support.

With the world mocking Internet Explorer on social media with statements, videos and memes for its inefficiency, Microsoft tried to wipe off the bad image users have towards the browser but failed several times over the past few years.

Netizens sharing pictures mocking, Internet Explorer.

The company has not announced anything about the release date of the ‘Project Spartan’ yet, but rumours have said that more information about the new browser might be revealed at the Microsoft Build 2015 conference this April.
