    If there is one thing we like around here it is polls. With an average response of nearly 5,000 votes, you seem to like them too.
    Last night, we broke some news about some names that Microsoft is considering for their new Project Spartan browser destined for Windows 10 in the coming months. The names were obtained through a research firm working on behalf of Microsoft to see which ones people seemed to enjoy. There is only one problem: none of them were 'Spartan'.

    Interestingly though, all the names began with 'e', which suggests Microsoft is heavily considering a name that evokes Explorer but is still different enough to imply a big change to the browser. Using Microsoft, IE or Internet Explorer before the new name are also under consideration, demonstrating that Microsoft is open to dropping the baggage that 'IE' or 'Internet Explorer' evoke from public perception.
