Spartan Browser features


Microsoft has a another bundled package within it’s windows 10 scheduled to be released later this year, Microsoft seems to have it that it might work out a way of replacing the Internet Explorer in Windows gradually to all for the more advanced and easy to use yet competitive “Spartan Browser”. Just what are the Spartan Browser features:-

“Spartan” will serve as the default browser on both the PC and mobile device versions of Windows 10. It will also utilize new “Edge” layout engine forked from Trident that is “designed for interoperability with the modern web”. The new Edge engine will be used by default across Windows 10, and pages can be rendered in the previous MSHTML engine for backwards compatibility with enterprise-specific websites and software.

“Spartan” does not support legacy technologies such as ActiveX and Browser Helper Objects, and will instead utilize an extension system. Internet Explorer will remain available alongside “Spartan” on Windows 10 for use in scenarios requiring IE-specific functionality, and will use the same dual-engine configuration as “Spartan”.

“Spartan” will integrate with Microsoft’s online platforms: it integrates with the Cortana digital assistant to provide voice control, search functionality, and dynamic, personalized information related to searches within the address bar. Users can make annotations to web pages that can be stored to and shared with OneDrive. It also integrates with the Reading List function to sync content between devices, and provides a Reading Mode that strips unnecessary formatting from pages to improve their legibility.
