Features of Microsoft’s New Spartan Web Browser
Yesterday, along with the announcement of many Windows 10 features like windows cortana, Microsoft also announced a new web browser code-named “Project Spartan,” which is said to replace Internet Explorer in Windows 10.
Here are some New features that were rumored and now officially described by Microsoft:
- Microsoft chose to focus on three main user-oriented features: stylus support, a Safari-like “reading mode” (a way to remove the clutter and make reading some web pages a more enjoyable experience) and Cortana integration.
- It has a new rendering engine.
- It has a new look and feel – a streamlined UI that fits in with the design language of Windows 10, which focuses on the page’s content.
- A note-taking mode lets you mark up the web with a stylus or a finger, so you can express your thoughts right on the canvas of the web.
- It can take the content in your reading list on Spartan and save it offline.
- Spartan will have built-in support for PDF files, which can be saved and marked up online and off.
- Cortana is built-in, ready to let you know things about the webpages you’re looking at, and also available to answer any of your questions.
- It will not be in Microsoft’s first insider build, and it’s coming to the phone a bit later.
