I’ll continue to use Chrome, it’s fast, safe and supports all the latest standards.

It doesn’t matter what you call it, Microsoft. Most of the people who hate on Internet Explorer are probably Google or Apple fans and have never really tried it. They’re not going to try it just because it has a new name either.

Not from what I heard and seen users tell me. Chrome has long way to go to integrate IE settings to work for Chrome. And most Institution use IE for their system files access and until Chrome can do what IE does don’t hold your breath that MS will give that up even if they change their IE to a different Browser name it is still the same IE with a new name.

Most people will be smart enough to know that not-Spartan-Browser is really just Internet Explorer 12. It will still be integrated into the system, and will still have the same rendering engine… so what’s the difference? I’ll bet it will still run the same malware ActiveX plugins, so it won’t be any more secure.

Between Firefox, Midori, Konqurer, Chrome/Chromium, Opera, and heaven knows how many other browsers are out there, I think most people who hate the existing versions of IE won’t like IE 12 either.
