Microsoft to end old Internet Explorer: Will your modernization be affected?

A browser emulator is a good solution to potential mainframe modernization concerns, but it should be compatible with any browser. The internet access landscape seems to be changing: Microsoft has finally decided to put an end to its longstanding Internet Explorer brand.

While the browser won't disappear completely, it will not be the primary browser for the upcoming Windows 10, as the Verge reports. The source asserts that the newer browsing option, ‚Äčtentatively named "Project Spartan," could become the main Windows browser and has appeared to to have tested better with Chrome users in the UK.

PC World's Ian Paul reports that this new move by Microsoft, which has yet to be confirmed, could successfully relaunch the company's browser capabilities and help it win new approval over with a fresh face. There will be an Internet Explorer 11, but it will have a smaller audience and function mainly as a legacy software. Because it's a gradual fadeout, the impact on those many users familiar with the classic style of Explorer could be less severe than it would with a sudden cancelation.

"The Spartan browser also comes with a brand new rendering engine called Edge," Paul writes. "The new browser engine promises to be much speedier than Trident, which powers IE. Edge is already built into the Windows 10 preview and can be enabled for Internet Explorer 11." 

Business system modernizations don't have to be affected by this change if the modernization solution being used is adaptable to different browser methods and web access preferences. Inventu's screen-to-web emulation solution is compatible with multiple popular browsers and makes adopting a modernization option easy for businesses that have different device needs. All possible access points within a company need to meet the same standards for system access to protect enterprise stability, and bringing important applications into an online environment could help anticipate that.
