New Microsoft browser?

Here we go again: https://bgr.com/2015/01/06/microsoft-spartan-pictures-release-internet-browser/

It looks like this so far:

Thoughts?

Why?

It is potentially exciting. Specifically because MS are prepared, finally, to say that New IE will be a modern browser, and to break compatibility with old sites and say “if you need to use those, run Old IE to do so”. Trident, the IE rendering engine, is actually really quite good, it just is hobbled by having to also make IE6-specific intranets still work. This break is the right thing to do. It was the right thing when Dean Edwards and I recommended it six years ago as well, but hey ho; they got there in the end :slight_smile:

Newer versions of IE are actually not bad. MS is far more interested in playing by the rules now than they were when they made IE6 since they are changing their business model.

I look forward to giving it a try without bias.

Please respect our code of conduct which is simple: don't be a dick.
