Microsoft Spartan is a big deal — it’s set to be a new browser for Windows 10, shifting focus from its long time web browser Internet Explorer (IE) to a new product, all the while maintaining support for Internet Explorer. Now, a new image of the browser has leaked onto the internet, giving us an early look of the browser in development.
Unlike the image that was leaked yesterday, which was fake, this image has been verified to be authentic. As you can make out in the blurry images above, there are squared tabs that sit above the address/search bar. As you can see in the image on the right, there is a folder and share button for easy sharing, and “three dots” for browser settings. The browser itself runs in a borderless window.
No other details were revealed about Spartan, but we expect to hear more about it in the coming months. No word on what Spartan will be called, but we’ve heard it will not be called “Internet Explorer 12.” Rumor says we might see Cortana integration with Spartan, allowing for voice activated navigation within the browser; “go to my favorites, take me to msn.com,” etc. Stay tuned as this story develops.Further reading: Internet Explorer, Microsoft, Spartan, Windows 10
