With the following headline chosen by the Verge: “Microsoft is killing off the Internet Explorer brand“, you’d think they wouldn’t go on to quote the struggling Goliath as saying:
We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we’ll also have a new browser called Project Spartan, which is codenamed Project Spartan.
Who are the Verge trying to fool? All this means, is that Internet Explorer (and all previous incarnations) will continue to exist. Project Spartan will just be an additional browser, joining us at the bottom of our test suite.
