Internet Explorer isn’t dead as yet, Microsoft may just rename it

Windows 10 is still sometimes away. And I am sure we will continue to discuss almost every rumor about it very religiously. Everything that is even remotely related to Windows 10 is going to attract people as it is directly related to millions and millions of people across the world.

The most talked about rumors about Microsoft’s Windows 10 include facial recognition and thumbprint identification. Another feature that seems to be even much more discussed is its yet to be named Internet Explorer. The company is going to kill the IE and come out with youthful looking internet browser that can put Chrome and Firefox in their place.

“We’re right now researching what the new brand, or the new name, for our browser should be in Windows 10…We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we also have a new browser called Project Spartan, which is code-named Project Spartan. And we have to name the thing”, said Microsoft marketing chief Chris Capossela. The company may not like to name the browser Spartan as it doesn’t seem so much exciting name.

Despite coming along with Windows operating system, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has seen its market share go down. Reports suggest that the browser actually lost its place in the last decade amid security concerns, antitrust scrutiny in the U.S. and Europe, and Microsoft’s struggle to establish a foothold in mobile devices. Internet Explorer still powers around fifty five percent of desktops and laptops but merely 3 percent smartphones and tablets.

Meanwhile there are reports that the company may give up passwords in its next gen operating system. Windows 10 that will be released later this year may instead come with a thumbprint or facial recognition. Microsoft has said that the latest biometric scanning capability and login screen will be known as Windows Hello. The company also said that it will work on any Windows 10 smartphone, tablet or personal computer.
