The Redmond giant confirmed the rumors being heard about project ‘Spartan’. Microsoft is working on a next-generation web browser which will be incorporated in the upcoming iteration of Windows, Windows 10 along with the previously existing IE. The new web browser Spartan will be available to both PC and mobile users.
The Windows 10 briefing event just gave us a brief idea about the upcoming browser Spartan. The new Microsoft-made browser looks more modern than IE, in line with its competitors such as Chrome and Firefox. The whole UI is simplified and there are much less ‘chrome’ elements to be seen.
The browser will also come with built-in note-taking and sharing features, allowing you to ‘select’ any part of a webpage, annotate it, and then share it with your friends or coworkers. Moreover official images from their blog hinted that the browser would support themes or it would have the capacity to adapt themes applied to the desktop. Project Spartan will also introduce a new Reading Mode for distraction free view of the page.
The new browser will also have integration with Cortona, the voice assistance service developed by Microsoft. At the same event Microsoft announced that they would be upgrading to Windows 10 for free. For more news about the briefing event, follow our blog.
