Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is making final touches to its browsers through its rendering engines, before finally availing it to Windows 10 for users.
Microsoft had a different strategy at the beginning of 2015, where it planned to include both the old “trident” engine and the new “edge” engine to both Windows 10 browsers. The two browsers are IE 11 and Spartan. The earlier decision was made taking into consideration the websites that would not be supported by the new engines. However, Microsoft has abandoned this earlier decision as a result of feedback from the new engine’s performance and adaptation. Microsoft has also realized that most developers are inclined towards the new edge engine, so most websites are now oriented towards the edge engine. So compatibility will not be an issue.
The two browsers will not be similar as speculators had suggested. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) announced that the Spartan browser will be independent of internet explorer and will have no similarities. The browser is set to be the default browser for all versions of Windows 10. It is not however known whether internet explorer 11 will come pre-installed. With Microsoft developers planning to capitalize Windows 10, developers are already on the final touches for both desktop Windows 10 as well as Windows for mobile devices. Windows 10 for mobile previews are already making debut, showcasing a very beautiful interface.
Windows 10 has been eagerly anticipated, with users wondering what Microsoft will offer them. A few exciting features have already been announced. The browsers have finally been modernized and will look and perform better than ever and with more interoperability. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) also announced that the browser will be integrated with Cortana. The virtual assistant has been very popular with Windows enthusiast, and this new integration is expected to bring more success to the project and overall user satisfaction. All the new developments are expected to give Microsoft competitive edge especially, with the existing cut throat competition among operating system giants.
