Level 63
In 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. Instead of analyzing the top 9000 sites that are responsible for around 88% of all web traffic (like Microsoft did in the past), they actually got to the root cause of compatibility issues and looked for patterns of trillions of urls instead.

The software giant has also revealed that they have fixed more than 3000 interoperability bugs and have added just over 40 new Web standards, all thanks to the „revised our internal engineering processes to prioritize real-world interoperability issues“.

For a complete picture, head over to the IEBlog or check the video above.


Level 1
New engine is just fork of Trident with WebKit addons as I read it (or maybe heard in some video).

Also a lot of people still thinks that IE6 and IE11 are same bulls***. NO they aren't same! IE11 have integrated adblock (partial but it have and it works on AdSense,social medias, YouTube, news portals in Croatia), Flash player integrated from Windows 8, better security (if you enable it) and finnaly => it's faster sometimes than Chrome. It have some rendering issues but everything is fixable for good web designer :)
