Microsoft’s Project Spartan browser is finally ready for you to try

Of the many stories to emerge from Microsoft January Windows 10 event, one of the most interesting was hearing about how Internet Explorer was being put out to pasture, and Microsoft would be embracing a new web browser for Windows 10, with the introduction of Project Spartan. From desktop to phone, the browser promised to supercharge productivity, bringing the power of Cortana, collaborative markup tools, and a brand new rendering engine to our web experience. After learning plenty about it, it’s finally time to try it out for ourselves, as Microsoft makes its first Project Spartan preview available.

For now we’re only talking about the PC release, being made available today to users running the latest Windows 10 Technical Preview. Microsoft is clear that much of what you’ll find is still in a very incomplete state, so while your interactions with Spartan may evolve between now and the formal Windows 10 release, you can at least get started checking out many of the features demonstrated earlier this year.

If you’re willing to put up with some rough-around-the-edges spots, all in the name of early access, go ahead and install the new Windows 10 preview release – and sign up to join the Windows Insider program if you haven’t yet, in order to get access.
