Project Spartan pops up in latest Windows 10 preview

After all that's been said about it, Project Spartan is finally available in the latest update to Windows 10 preview, allowing everyone to try it out and see if it's really as good as they hope to be.

Spartan is the brand new, made from scratch, browser with which Microsoft hopes to put to rest the "legacy" of Internet Explorer. This browser is touted as being one of the fastest and most efficient ever and this is finally we can finally put to the test with the lastest Windows 10 preview with Spartan.

Of course you need to take into account this is still a "work in progress" and that there's still some pieces missing and room for improvement; but even so, we can already see the direction Microsoft is heading and figure out if it's on the right track... which I think it is.

Spartan comes with a brand new web rendering engine, Reading List and Reading View modes that allow you to save content for "undistracted" reading later, and Cortana integration (which promises to help users when they need it.) Perhaps more interesting is the annotation feature that let's us quickly jot down notes, comments and drawings over any web page, and save or share them, One Note style. It makes the usual "screenshot->image editing->saving->sharing" process seem really pre-historic.
