    Set Spartan as your default browser in Control Panel/Default Programs/Set your default programs/Project Spartan/Set this program as default/OK
    Thanks, Edwin. I've only used this a few times; I don't have too many conflicting programs on my computer(s), so I rarely go there. IE, Firefox, Chrome, etc. all ask me to make them my default when I open them. Hopefully Spartan will too.

    I found another bug in Spartan. I can't change the printer settings under More settings in Spartan.
    I do it the old fashioned way because I usually want to save and maybe print later when I get time to read it.

    I highlight all the data I want to print, Ctrl C (copy), open Word, Ctrl V (paste) and then print it or save it.

    You have to set "Project Spartan" as default (not "Spartan"). EDIT - Beaten to it by Edwin

    Thanks Adam. I sometimes need to look at what I'm doing in order to understand it. So, this is good and hopefully will help more folks than myself.

    I was just testing out Spartan. Printing does works in Spartan. I wanted to try out 2 sided printing.

    It won't print on both sides!? That's a real deal breaker for me, because I put what I may need to refer to later into a notebook, and I don't want to fatten it up any more than I have to.

    So, I'll just continue on with putting it in Word until it will let me print on both sides.

    I don't think Spartan will support ad-block add-ons.

    Attachment 16051
    When using IE11 in Windows 8 & 10TP one doesn't need an ad-blocker. It's sufficient to just make sure all filtering is turned on, and tracking protection is enabled(I personally recommend Stop Google Tracking and PrivacyChoice) and that Flash Player is set click-to-play. As long as Spartan supports these, an ad blocker would only slow down/conflict with the system anyhow, from my experience.
    One other thing IE is good at remembering the settings I use for each of my bookmarks, such as what filtering is turned off where, so my favorite trusted sites can pay their server fees.

    Another bug I think -- you can't set to "Compatibility mode" == this means that you can't for example copy the URL from a site and post it into a post on the forum when adding to a thread.

    (In IE11 on build 10041 I had to switch to compatibility mode to get URL's to be able to copy and paste into Forum Posts).
    Not a bug. Spartan will not support Compatibility mode. In fact, that's one reason it's so fast and uses much less memory. It drops all backwards compatibility functions.

    Update to my post(#96):
    from NeoWin:
    "Do Not Track" to be disabled by default in future Microsoft web browsers
    In a blog post, Brendon Lynch, Microsoft's Chief Privacy Officer, explains that future Web browsers from Microsoft will not have "Do Not Track" off by default, allowing advertisers the ability to track where the user has been on the Web. The latest draft from the W3C states that enabling "Do Not Track" should be a "deliberate choice by the user" and "[i]n the absence of user choice, there is no tracking preference expressed."

    Hi there
    OK but until websites (some) get updated then it means you might need more than one browser so I assume that IE will still be available even after Spartan finally is released properly.

    I'm glad that the Favourites issue has already been mentioned that it's a known bug and will be fixed (can't order favourites etc - previously mentioned in people's previous posts).

    As a fast browser it currently seems to do the job - I'll try NETFLIX and SKY GO over Easter --wonder how it will handle Silverlight / DRM video content.

    Cheers

    Giving up using Spartan as default in it's present state. Looks promising but it's got the same annoying quirks IE has.
    Fooling around with it is fine but, it's not workin for me.
    It'll get better, (hopefully!)
