Video: Internet Explorer, A Break From The PastIn a newly published post, the IE Team has revealed the steps they took to modernize its rendering engine (aka split it from the original Trident).

That‘s why Spartan is said to be more compatible than IE has ever been, especially due to a new web approach.
