Have you had a chance to play around with the new browser at all? I'm curious about it.

Re: browser?
@Thomas: The rendering part in Spartan is rumored to be better than in Chrome or Safari, i.e. a diagonal line on the screen looks the prettiest on the Spartan browser. Everyone seems so hyped up about this.

Re: browser?
Desktop version of Cortana? If that is true then the Help and Support centre will get a new and interactive boost. And I also hear that the start menu would have Live Tiles. Lets see how the final version looks.

Re: browser?
Yes, it works quite OK...but in the end it is just one more browser to run tests on. Testing against IE11, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox is already too much work. Rather than have yet one more newly invented wheel the web app folks would be much appreciative when vendors would

- adhere strictly to W3C standards without exception

- execute JS in the same way

I bet it would save the software industry billions and get vendors release good product faster. It used to be that IE was the odd one out, but lately it is Chrome that needs extra work.

Re: browser?
@thomas yep, I've used it a fair amount. I didn't expect this, but I really like the feature that lets you mark up and save webpages. When I heard about that in Microsoft's original announcement it just seemed like a nice-to-have, but I can see this as being a great tool for sharing notes with people. Overall, even though I was using it in preview, seems like Spartan is working pretty fast and functional so far.

Re: browser?
The Help and Support of Windows XP was really ahead of its game. Lets see if Cortana can up that game, at the same time providing a good experience.
