    While Microsoft has dropped hints that the Internet Explorer brand is going away, the software maker has now confirmed that it will use a new name for its upcoming browser successor, codenamed Project Spartan.

    Why is this news... this is like 2 months or more old.... when it was originally announced that windows 10 preview was already switching gears to rename the browser.... Really it's mostly just a rename and dropping all lot of the legacy crap.

    The previous "hints" were only just confirmed.

    The reason I moved this here is that The Verge's article says that Microsoft has "Confirmed" the hints from the past.. so it is "News" and thanks to Dyre for the submit.

    I would not of moved it is the article were not within HH's news rules (Anything older than 3 days old is not usually moved)

    I hope they call it the "New Internet Explorer". You know, pull a Nintendo.
