Internet Explorer 11 won't use Microsoft's new 'Edge' browser engine in Windows 10

InfoWorld - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 11:10

Microsoft is getting even more serious about differentiating between Internet Explorer and Project Spartan, the new browser built for Windows 10. When Windows 10 ships later in 2015, IE11 will not use Edge, the new rendering engine built for Project Spartan. Instead, IE11 will remain powered by the Trident engine -- exactly as it is in Windows 8.1.

Microsoft's original plan was to let both Internet Explorer and Project Spartan use Edge. The two browsers would also be able to fallback to Trident for sites using Microsoft's legacy Web technologies. After feedback from developers, however, Microsoft is drawing a clear line between the two browsers: IE11 is for legacy sites (mostly enterprise Intranet sites and Web apps) while Project Spartan is for the modern Web. [ Find out what Windows 10 means for enterprises and take a look at the latest beta of Microsoft's new OS. | Stay up on key Microsoft technologies with InfoWorld's Enterprise Windows blog and Microsoft newsletter. ] Microsoft

InfoWorld - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 09:38

Apple has reportedly acquired database company FoundationDB, a move that would allow the company to improve the underpinnings of its existing services and also lay the groundwork for an Internet of Things (IoT) expansion.

On its part, FoundationDB said that it will no longer offer downloads of its database, and that "we have made the decision to evolve our company mission."

InfoWorld - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 08:42

Microsoft: Office will be free for devices under 10 inches

InfoWorld - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 07:30

Microsoft drew a line in the sand on Tuesday, as its Office 365 chief said that editing and viewing documents on small-screen devices would continue to be free -- likely killing off the idea of a small-screen Surface Pro mini, incidentally. 

Kirk Koenigsbauer, the corporate vice president for the Office 365 Client Apps and Services team, revealed in a blog post that Microsoft believes that 10.1 inches is the dividing line between a "personal" and "professional" experience. Pros need the reliability and security of paid apps, while "personal" users are more interested in free.
