    Hope it emulates FF more than Chrome, if it allows more of plugins than IE, I just might switch to it as main browser.

    I believe Microsoft will add Cortana to Spartan so people can stay in the same open browser window instead of opening another search from the Taskbar :/
    Will only work of course if signed into Cortana

    For the record ie11-12 already looks like FF and Chrome when Microsoft dropped transparent glass

    To try something new and IE will be phased out over time.

    I may use it if there are a wider variety of plugins or extensions similar to Firefox or Chrome and M$ maintains the site for the life of the browser as one startling discovery I made this week is that Microsoft completely gutted their US Internet Explorer Gallery site with only a handful of Add Ons left that was once pages & pages of Add Ons etc.

    A good example of this was having to use the search box just to find the Google Translate & Maps Add Ons that were once readily available and my favorite Add On with the stop sign icon that is against forum rules to discuss in detail was nowhere to be found.

    Why can't Microsoft, design a decent browser? Chrome, Firefox, Opera countless other browsers seem to work within almost every version of windows, and linux, not sure about OSX. So, why design a browser that is not backward compatible with it's own OS?

    It just seems almost everything MS designs, they drop in a few years.

    I voted I don't know. I have to try it before I can decide. I do know it's going to be hard to convince me to change. Not impossible, just hard. :)

    As I.E. (11 now) is my primary browser and has been for a long time, I'll use Spartan.

    I also have FF and use it occasionally.

    I notice I.E. supplied with Win 10 has the same ad bypassing feature as FF. I accessed the Yahoo crossword puzzle using Win 10/I.E. and it blocked the ad the same way that FF does.

    I'm with you. Spartan is going to have to be decent before I even think of dropping FF.
