The Project Spartan Web browser for Windows 10 has now an official name: Microsoft Edge.
The new browser will be available on all Windows 10 devices including smartphones and tablets.
Microsoft Edge is the successor to Internet Explorer and designed to be basic and minimalist for the future.
Highlights of Microsoft Edge:
It has built-in Cortana support, Microsoft’s virtual assistant.
It has a built-in reading list, web note-taking and sharing features.
The rendering engine is called EdgeHTML.
The design focuses on minimalism and simplicity.
It has a super useful and well-designed “New Tab” page.
It contains the vast majority of the controls.
The best news about Edge is that the browser will support web extensions designed for Firefox and Chrome with only “minor” code alterations needed.
The new Windows Edge logo looks similar to the Internet Explorer logo.
