    Microsoft Spartan: One browser for all Windows 10 versions


    As we previously reported, Spartan is a Windows Store application, and we can confirm that it will be replacing the current Modern version of IE that is included in Windows 8.1. Spartan will support Flash as well; this was a common question we received and can confirm that some versions of the browser do support it. We say "some versions" as the platform you are on will determine which features are available to you.

    Spartan will be the browser across all of your Microsoft devices, from Windows 10 Mobile (Windows Phone) to Windows 10, and eventually onto your Xbox; this is Microsoft's new Modern browser. And because Modern apps now work on the desktop in Windows 10, Spartan could very well be your choice of replacement for Internet Explorer.

    Nice last paragraph on the article
    If history serves every version need a year to mature that will take it well past 10 release before prime time is viable
    ie11 in win-7 still is weird as heck.

    There's a difference in supporting flash and making it where it's not easily removable

    I can't seem to find any further info on this 'Digital Inking' feature coming to the new Spartan browser, anybody read anything about it?

    The Inking feature has been mentioned in a few of the items. But apart from saying what it is, none are very descriptive. Like this one:

    I wonder if it's going to be kind of like a digital signing feature as with Adobe or merely a screenshot sharing type of feature.
