Jason Weber, the Group Program Manager for the Internet Explorer team posted a blog post today outlining Microsoft's upcoming browser codenamed "Project Spartan". Jason outlines the goal of the project and how they are designing a rendering engine that focuses on interoperability and displaying web pages as they meant to be displayed.
As we announced last month, Project Spartan will be the new browser across all Windows 10 devices, from phones to tablets, PCs and beyond. Youll hear about the new browsers features in the coming months but in this post, we want to tell you more about what motivated us to build a new rendering engine focused on interoperability with other modern browsers - all in the name of making the Web just work for our customers. This new rendering engine was designed with Project Spartan in mind, but will also be available in Internet Explorer on Windows 10 for enterprises and other customers who require legacy extensibility support.
