Over the past few weeks it has come to be known that Microsoft is building a completely new web browser that will be introduced with Windows 10. This new browser is said to have the codename “Spartan.” Several reports have been published during this time which talk about the features and user interface that this browser is expected to bring. Now some screenshots of the Windows 10 Spartan browser have been leaked online by a Chinese publication.
The screenshots affirm what we have read in most reports so far. Spartan’s user interface is clean and much more similar to Chrome and Firefox than Internet Explorer’s ever was. Cortana, Microsoft’s virtual private assistant, is integrated within the web browser itself and can be accessed through the URL bar.
One of the screenshots also shows a dark theme for Windows 10. It may only be an initial concept for now though so its possible that Microsoft might make further changes to the user interface before a final version is unveiled for the public.
Microsoft has an event scheduled for January 21st where it is expected to unveil the final consumer version of Windows 10. It may even show off Windows 10 for smartphones and tablets at this event, the iteration hasn’t been seen in many leaks up till now, so its will be interesting to see what Microsoft’s next iteration of Windows looks like on mobile devices.
