I'd bet that close to 100% of you have used Windows at some point in your lives, which means you've also experienced Internet Explorer. Microsoft's default Web browser has been around since 1995 and during the last 20 years has had its ups and downs (mostly downs if we're honest).

It was only in the last five years that pressure from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome caused Microsoft to get serious about improving IE, and between version 8 and version 11 it's come a long way in speed, usability and security. Even so, it still has a bad reputation with a lot of tech users, so Microsoft is making a change.

Reports are spreading about a new Microsoft browser codenamed "Spartan" that should be arriving in Windows 10. It's loosely based on Internet Explorer code, but it's been redesigned and tweaked to be faster, more stable, more secure and it'll include features that rival its competitors.
