Microsoft is killing off the Internet Explorer brand
While Microsoft has dropped hints that the Internet Explorer brand is going away, the software maker has now confirmed that it will use a new name for its upcoming browser successor, codenamed Project Spartan. Speaking at Microsoft Convergence yesterday, Microsoft's marketing chief Chris Capossela revealed that the company is currently working on a new name and brand. "We’re now researching what the new brand, or the new name, for our browser should be in Windows 10," said Capossela. "We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we’ll also have a new browser called Project Spartan, which is codenamed Project Spartan. We have to name the thing."

HGST Deskstar nick named the Death Star hard drive? Hitachi worked hard to really improve the failure rates and I bought three 4TB drives of theirs recently.
Good news is that it's supposed to out perform Chrome and Firefox in a number of rendering functions.
Never mind killing off the brand: Just kill off the browser.

When the IE logo disappears, we will hear a lot of wails of "my internet has gone".
It worries me slightly that the existence of just two operating systems families holds back innovation
