More details, along with some leaked screenshots, have been posted showing off more of "Project Spartan", the code name for Microsoft's next web browser that will be included in Windows 10 for PCs and smartphones.
Neowin has posted up the information and images, which talk about how the Cortana digital assistant is integrated in Project Spartan. It states:
"If you open up a restaurant website or a retail outlet, Cortana will bounce around in the address bar to let you know that it has useful information. In this case, it brings up the hours of operation, menu, reviews, a map to the store and even photos. All this information pops up in the right side of the browser after clicking on Cortana, and lets you view the content without leaving the page you are on."
There's also information on the new version of reading mode, which was first introduced in Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 8.1. It will allow users to change the look of a web page so that only the main texts and images are displayed, with no banner ads. Project Spartan will also integrate reading lists, which allow users to save web-based content to read offline. Stand alone Reading List apps were launched by Microsoft for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1.
Microsoft has already confirmed that the first public release of Project Spartan will be available with the next Windows 10 Technical Preview release, which is expected to launch sometime in April.
