This week or next it is expect that we will see the next Windows 10 Preview build for PCs and Tablets drop to Windows Insiders. While the release date is not exactly known, there are indications of what can be expected in the build. While no major changes are coming to the Preview, you can expect to see the new Project Spartan web browser experience come to it in this release.
For those of you who haven’t heard, Project Spartan is a new universal app browser that is coming to all platforms in Windows 10. That new browser, which was demonstrated yesterday at MWC in Barcelona, is significantly faster than the current Internet Explorer and brings other improvements like Cortana integration. Everything I’ve seen and from those on the inside at Microsoft are saying it is impressive. Personally, I cannot wait to see it.
The even better thing about Project Spartan is that it is a true Universal App based on the methodology and framework Microsoft laid out yesterday. That means that we will see this new browser experience not only on PCs and Tablets, we will see it on Windows 10 for Phones. That will also be in the next Preview build for Phones but don’t expect the next build for phones next week. All indications are we have a mid-to-late March to wait for that release.
