Like many Windows Insiders yesterday, I spent a good chunk of my evening downloading and installing Build 10049, the latest update to the Windows 10 Technical Preview and the first to include Project Spartan. For those of you who are not familiar with what Project Spartan is exactly, it is the new browser experience that is coming in Windows 10 and you can read my summary of what it is in this post from yesterday.
The main focus of Build 10049 was Project Spartan so naturally I have focused most of my time in testing up the build in this new browser. My first impressions are positive and I certainly like what I’m seeing. It is a much cleaner viewing experience to be certain but there are other things that just make sense in Spartan. I like where this is going and I think once Microsoft has it completed it will be a fantastic experience for everyone.
