Can Microsoft's 'Spartan' Compete With Chrome, Firefox?

If you’ve ever used a PC running Windows, there's a good chance you've used Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser. Well, starting with the release of Windows 10, you may have another choice — Spartan.
Sources tell ZDnet that Microsoft plans to launch Windows 10 not with a new version of IE, but with an entirely new Internet browser codenamed Spartan alongside IE11.
According to ZDNet, the Spartan browser will be meant to look and feel more like IE's competition: Google's Chrome and Mozilla's Firefox. Though under the hood, Microsoft supposedly plans to keep Spartan's foundation similar to IE.
