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.”
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.
