    No surprise Spartan is leading the benchmark tests. It has very minimal features in it at this point. It has full of muscles but it can't do much. It's like a body builder who can lift the heaviest weights but can't lift his fingers to do laundry.
    Ohhhhhhh, Bad Robot, did you leave yourself open or what!?!?

    But I'll be a good girl and not take advantage of ya.

    Serious question: I saw someone say they were posting to Ten Forums with Spartan, but I can't figure out how to do even the simplest thing in it. It's just not there for me.

    Hi All,
    Spartan still has a long......way to go before it's a 'usable' browser for me, I need more functionality in it, at least for me ..I need to be able to use an addon such as lastpass password manager. I use it in my other variation's of web browser's.

    I think it's making good progress for a new browser. By time Win10 hits the streets I hope it's much better.

    Spartan is working reasonably well for me and am using it now. Am now able to rearrange the Favorites Bar to suit me which wasn't true before. However, after rearranging, when you close the browser and reopen, the Favorites Bar reverts to alphabetical rather than my rearrangement. Anyone been able to find a way to keep selection arrangement?

    The "minimal" features it has are in the "Chrome" or the application part, the rendering engine is the part that is fast and that is rather fully featured. Adding a home button doesn't affect how fast the browser renders.

    I like that it's fast and that I don't have to install a browser to start off with Win10.

    Exactly!! And given how early in it's life cycle it's really not that bad and I think it's headed in the right direction for me at least. A clean simple/fast browser for some uses.

    I've been trying Vivaldi out(on my Windows 8.1 machine) and have had more crashes and bugs in one month with it, than I have with Windows 10 completely since October. And except for a few graphic glitches I find Spartan running good for my browsing habits, I would just like to have the little block/unblock content switch that IE has, you know the little blue circle next to the refresh arrow.
