Re: Internet Explorer

That reminds me of the Browser Choice screen - of the first five displayed, only one had "Internet" in its name, and besides that, Google was the only other easily recognisable name. So I'd think it's more likely to stay as something starting with Internet rather than having an icon with some totally abstract name like Icarus.

Re: Internet Explorer

There is no point in renaming it unless they want to eradicate it altogether & start afresh, with no traces of previous version(s) in the process
