You must have already heard about Microsoft’s latest OS, the Windows 10. Well, its time you meet the Spartan. This is not a reference to the parody made on the movie, 300. Microsoft has indeed named its latest web browser as Spartan. Now that’s a statement!
As of now, no confirmation has been provided by Microsoft with respect to the features that would be integrated in this browser. However, it is certain that the browser would have ground-breaking features, the likes of which are currently non-existent in competing browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
Amidst all the chaos and speculations, we have managed to compile a list of features that can be expected in Spartan.
Digital inking has been gaining popularity as users love to pen down their thoughts on digital screens and see their handwriting instead of standard fonts. Microsoft has already integrated digital inking support in its devices. This feature can be expected in Spartan where users may annotate a web page by using a stylus. The notes and annotations can be sent over a network.
The benefit of annotated web pages is that these pages can be stored on OneDrive and can be accessed later by any browser and across multiple platforms. The application of this feature is extremely beneficial, especially in real time info sharing with respect to searched pages or specific landing pages.
Spartan Meets Cortana
If rumours were to be believed, the Spartan could be linked with Cortana, Microsoft’s very own digital assistant. The reason behind considering this integration to be an important feature in Spartan is that Microsoft had shared its intentions of keeping Cortana as an integral part of the new Windows 10 OS. So it is obvious that it would be linked with the new browser also.
This is our personal favourite. The group tab feature would allow tabs to be grouped in a new way. With tabs being grouped in a neat manner, there would be less clutter while working with multiple browser tabs. The possibilities in which the tabs would be grouped are many. However, it is certain that the prime focus of the clustering would be on enhancing the overall productivity by ensuring better management of tabs.
One of the most interesting features (as speculated) about the new Spartan web browser could be that the browser would not be an app instead of a software component. This would allow faster updates and smoother processing of update information for it.
