You’ll notice the new reading mode view that’s present, along with some customization options such as the option to show the favorites bar, detecting phone numbers, enabling SmartScreen filter, the option to change your homepage and more.

It’s important to note that this is an early release of the Spartan Browser, and many things can still change, such as the addition and removal of features until its released with Windows 10 later this year.

Cortana integration with the Spartan browser in Windows 10 is proving to be very useful [Video]

Win10_Windows_Spartan_PrintMicrosoft is committed to providing a first-class Cortana experience tailored for the PC in Windows 10, and from what we’ve seen, Cortana is rather impressive and Microsoft is definitely on the right track.

One of the new ways you’ll be able to interact with Cortana is in the new Spartan browser Microsoft is building specifically for Windows 10. In the video from WinBeta (embedded below), you’ll notice some pretty small but powerful features which everyday users could grow to love and how Cortana can significantly improve your browsing experience.

One of the neat ways Cortana will be very useful in Spartan is when you’re looking up a website pertaining to a business and want to know everything that’s important to you about this particular business. Cortana’s avatar will jump up and down to let you know she has important information ready for you, and when clicking on her avatar, a menu on the right of the screen will appear providing you with all the relevant information pertaining to the business such as the location, hours of operation, reservations, reviews and more. This all happens behind the scenes while you’re still browsing with a single mouse click.

In addition to that, you’ll also be able to right click any word and select “ask Cortana” in the sub menu, which will provide you with all of the information about the word or its definition in the side bar to the right of the screen. This feature can also be used to select places, which would provide you with a map and details about the particular place rather than opening up a separate tab and searching for it the traditional way.

This is a fantastic example on how Microsoft is tailoring a first-class browsing experience for Windows using Cortana, and with features such as these, Cortana has a good chance to be loved by the masses.
