Microsoft recently rolled out a new version of the Technical Preview of Windows 10, with a big novelty: the arrival of Project Spartan . The firm has not yet said its last word, however, and will therefore hold a special press conference next May, a conference entirely dedicated to its new web browser.
The Web Summit will take place over two days, and more specifically on May 5 and 6. It will focus entirely on Spartan and it will target not the general public, of course, but seasoned developers and integrators.
They should learn more about the various optimizations made to the browser, but also about the EdgeHTML rendering engine.
We will finally discover the final name of the browser
If this name doesn't ring a bell , then know that this is a fork of Trident. To design it, the engineers of the firm started with a blank sheet, or almost. It will only power Spartan, the old rendering engine remaining however available for old web applications, through Internet Explorer.
In all likelihood, Microsoft should also take the opportunity to reveal the final name of the browser. Its name, but also its logo, even if there is a good chance that it is close to that of the Technical Preview.
I had the opportunity to take it in hand for a few minutes, and I admit I was quite seduced. However, I am waiting to push my investigations a little further to get back to you.
If the subject interests you, please note that the event will be broadcast live on one of Microsoft's sites at this address: channel9.msdn.com . So you will have no excuse not to stick to your computer.
