Look who showed up for the big Microsoft Build developers conference. Microsoft has announced at Build 2015 that a new browser will replace Internet explorer from all Windows 10 devices. This new gen browser (originally called Spartan) is called Microsoft Edge.
Microsoft Edge is built using a new rendering engine called EdgeHTML. This browser is made for both, consuming content as well as building it. Microsoft has approached this browser in a new manner and much neater look has been given to it. Cortana support will come with the browser as well as distraction free reading.
Microsoft on its blog said, “With the new browser you can write directly on Web pages (and share them), read online articles free from distraction or use the offline reading feature for greater convenience,”
It is still unclear that will it come to older operating systems or not, but we do have a hunch it might show up on Windows 8 (at least) after a few months of Windows 10 launch.
Here take a look at the video of the new Microsoft Edge:
