A number of recent reports have suggested that Microsoft was ready to move past Internet Explorer and introduce a new browser, code-named Spartan, to the world. Now, Microsoft has made that official by announcing that Project Spartan will be the new web browsing experience for Windows 10. The new browser will feature an all-new rendering engine, but beyond that Microsoft wanted to focus on three new features, some of which we learned about earlier this year.
Chief among those new features is new inking support that lets users annotate web pages and sync all of those notes to OneDrive and share them with collaborators — a service that makes a ton of sense given Microsoft’s focus on the stylus with its Surface lineup. Microsoft demonstrated this feature heavily in its demo (even mocking up a Verge article about Project Spartan’s new features). Beyond pen-like note-taking features, you can also click anywhere on a page and add comments and annotations, much like in Office documents.
