Internet Explorer isn’t dead in Windows 10

In a story that came out recently, many media organizations are claiming that Microsoft is killing Internet Explorer. But according to a statement from Microsoft: “We will continue to make Internet Explorer available with Windows 10 for enterprises and other customers who require legacy browser support.”

This was already mentioned in a blog from the Internet Explorer team back in January 2015 and repeated in March 2015.

Even if the consumer version of Windows 10 does not contain Internet Explorer, I wouldn’t be surprised if Microsoft backtracks after Windows 10 comes out and re-releases Internet Explorer as a separate download if there are enough complaints.

One analyst believes that Internet Explorer 10 will be available on all non-mobile versions of Windows [i.e. desktop and laptop] but will not be the default web browser. In addition, while Internet Explorer uses the Trident rendering engine, Project Spartan [IE’s replacement] will use Trident’s cousin rendering engine named Edge.
