Software maker Microsoft is set to discount its iconic Internet Explorer brand and will use a new name for its latest browser.

The newer version is currently codenamed Project Spartan.

Frustrated users have previously slammed the browser for being slow and bug-prone, and Microsoft once talked of changing the name of the browser to address “negative perceptions that no longer reflect reality”.

Microsoft’s Marketing Chief Chris Capossela said, “We’re now researching what the new brand, or the new name, for our browser should be in Windows 10.

“We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we’ll also have a new browser, which is codenamed Project Spartan. We have to name the thing.”

Although it’s not clear when the browser’s new name will be revealed, it will form part of the much anticipated Windows 10, which will launch later this year.
