So long Project Spartan, Microsoft Edge is here!

Microsoft has announced at Build 2015 that Microsoft Edge is the final name for its new web browser for Windows 10, which was previously known by its code name "Project Spartan"

As previously announced, Microsoft Edge was made specifically for Windows 10. It will have features such as built in note taking and sharing and will also have Microsoft's Cortana digital assistant built in.

Microsoft Edge will have a new tab page, which will be located in the address bar in the middle of the page. It will also include top sites, including if there is an app, and user information. It looks very clean.

Web extensions made via HTML and Javascript will also be supported in Microsoft Edge, and any extensions made for Chrome can work with Edge with just a few code adjustments.

Microsoft also showed how a Pinterest plugin will work in Microsoft Edge, as shown in the photo above.

Stay tuned as we will have more news from the Build 2015 keynote throughout the da
