    Yea, they probably saw the sales numbers of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and thought: Yep, seems like a good name! /s

    That is a phone and this is a browser, big difference. also they called the new rendering engine Edge long time ago.

    Kinda wish they would move away from the e logo and anything associated with IE. It's poisoned at this point. I was in a 30 person training class and the first question out of several people was why our system forced us to use IE and no alternative browsers. IE is nowhere near as bad as it used to be, but people do not want to go near it if they have been using Chrome or Firefox for the last few years.

    Also worth noting that for many users, the blue "e" is the internet and nothing else. So I imagine they dont want to rock that boat.

    Regardless of what I think it's all moot anyway. This one's carved in stone folks.

    No real preference here.

    Makes me think of the Ford Edge.
    Which is also nice.

    I prefer Spartan / Microsoft Spartan (Ms S hahaha) but Microsoft Edge (ME) is fine by me.

    Not quite liking the name, but I guess it'll stick. As for the icon, they should change it more. It's too similar to IE, which is a bad thing for most people.

    Whenever I see Edge name the first thing comes in my mind is Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

    So, I think Spartan will be much cooler than edge.

    Spartan is very cool and strong name.

    I'm guilty of thinking of IE as if it were a venereal disease because of past performance issues. However, some really bad recent problems with Firefox have led me back to IE11 and it's been a pretty positive experience. I still don't use Chrome because I just don't like the layout.

    Like the name, don't care for the logo.

    Spartan is a "getting things done" name.
    Edge is nothing more than weak clich.
    It's awful. I just don't get the mindset behind that decision. People can't possibly walked out of that decision meeting feeling "pumped", could they?
    Gahhhhh.
    Anyway. It's done now.

    Come on, it's not that bad. I mean, it could have been better, sure, but this is still ok.
    As for the mindset behind the naming, they wanted a name that symbolises new technology. Lots of people heard the phrases 'To have an edge over someone', 'The bleeding edge specs/tech' and so on.
