Microsoft has revealed that Project Spartan is now known as Microsoft Edge, the browser that will be used in Windows 10, which also serves to replace Internet Explorer. It is said to have the "e" logo just like it was in Internet Explorer, but a bit different. Plus, it will also support extensions just like in Firefox and Google Chrome.

What's your opinion on this newly-announced browser from Microsoft? Do you think Edge will catch up with the other modern browsers?

The "e" logo is good—regardless of its terrible history with Internet Explorer—as people are already accustomed to the "e" referring to internet. The first thing my grandma looks for in a computer when she wants to search google is the iconic "e", and because of that it took her a while to adjust that she's supposed to look for a compass on OS X and not a letter. 😂

I'm not sure about about catching up just yet, but Edge has managed to get ahead of Chrome in JavaScript benchmarks.

I may stick to Chrome for now, but we'll wait and see what Edge will offer us. It is interesting to hear they are keeping that iconic "e" but still going to redesign it to make it look fresh at the same time.

Internet Explorer does support extensions (I'm looking at you, Adblock Plus), although it's something that is not very known.

Yeah, I'll stick with Chrome for now. Microsoft, if you can convince me to switch, then I will.

I don't really have an opinion on such a thing right now other than "oh, sounds cool." Gonna have to see it in action before anything else. :P I'm not even going to entertain the thought of switching until that time.

(Although I actually am interested to see how this will do compared to the current IE!)

It's still improved IE, but I rather stick with firefox and chrome. Until more issue need fixing before switching to edge

But Spartan was such a cool name. Well. Shame, that. Whilst I don't expect it to be 'edgy', I'll give it a try whenever Windows 10 is officially rolled out. Who knows, it might be cutting edge.

I'll stop making puns now. Sorry.

This is...very interesting. I've tried out other browsers like FF as well as Maxthon, and they weren't really for me. I want to actually see what Edge can do compared to the modern browsers and I'm hoping it can actually keep up with, if not best, the competition.
