Microsoft launched Windows 10 Technical Preview several months ago. The company is rumored to launch a brand new browser alongside Windows 10. According to several reports, the browser is codenamed as “Spartan” which will be available for Windows Phone. Now, according to a new report from The Verge’s Tom Warren, Spartan will pack the ‘most advanced features ever’.
With Spartan, Microsoft is planning to take advantage of its existing services – such as, Cortana and OneNote. Tom Warren reports that Spartan will allow users to annotate on a website and share it via OneNote. Spartan will also come with the power of Cortana. The personal assistant will display data such as flights, hotel bookings and package tracking on the address bar. For example, if you search for a flight on the address bar, it’ll instantly display the flight’s status on the sidebar. The report also claims that Microsoft is planning to replace Bing with Cortana’s powerful features with Spartan. It’s still unclear if Microsoft is going to replace Internet Explorer with Spartan on the next version of Windwos Phone, however.
According to the report, the browser will be available on the Windows Store — allowing the company to update the quickly and add new features easily. Microsoft is expected to reveal official details on Spartan on its January 21st event. We’ll make sure to keep you updated with the latest on Spartan for Windows Phone.
