Spartan browser

 

Reports suggests that Microsoft is working on a New Internet Browser for Windows 10, Moving from the good-old bad-old Internet Explorer to the new Microsoft Spartan Browser. The New "Spartan" browser is still in-development. Today though there are a couple of new leaked images doing the rounds, and these two show us a very different design for Spartan.

The actual leaked images are the first two below. Underneath you can see a mockup based on them, which is supposedly a near 1:1 replica of the browser's UI.

 

Thankfully this time around Spartan looks a lot more modern, yet it still manages to be quite minimalistic. The browser clearly looks more like Chrome and Firefox than IE, and not many will say that's a bad thing. Next to the star for bookmarking purposes lies a "reading mode" button which strips out the text and makes whichever page you're on more readable (this is similar to Safari's Reader Mode).

The share icon lets you easily send a link to the current website through social networks or by email, and the three dots on the right are there to open up the settings, as you may have guessed. Spartan's window is borderless, allowing content to stretch from edge to edge. All of the UI elements are at the top.

After adding Material Design on its Android 5.0 Lollipop for Smartphones and Tablets, Google is looking to bring the Material Design UI to Desktops by updating Chrome Browser (for PC, Mac and linux) and the Chromium OS too in a new project codenamed "Athena".

The "Athena" project is a project bringing a new kind of user experience to Chrome OS. Bringing radical changes in both the user interface and the fundamentals of the Chrome OS user experience. Material Design elements is already available for web developers who are lokking to add a Google-ish touch to their websites or webApps.

These leaked screenshots from an alpha build of Chrome Os shows the New UI that will be released sometime this year, we don't know the exact version when these changes will start rolling-out. It's highly expected that we might see those changes when Google Chrome version 50 get released, currently it's on version 42.

Google Chrome's team is planning on using on using Microsoft's Pointer Events API and integrating it into the browser, this will make the scrolling on all Android smartphones more smoother than now.


One major benefit of the smoother scrolling. Some of the other browsers that employ Pointer Events like Firefox and IE, run smoother than Chrome. The Chromium team listened to feedback from web developers, framework authors, and other browser vendors who said that Pointer Events would be a great addition to the platform.


The currently used Touch Events API is not going to disappear, and with IE supporting both, it is possible that Chrome also will continue using Touch Events while starting to implement the Pointer Events API. The bottom line is that Chrome users will soon have a better scrolling experience.

 

Official Chromium Team Blog

 

"Pointer Events offers some technical advantages over the existing use of Touch Events and Mouse Events. Most notably, pointer event listeners never block scrolling, and so replacing all touch event handlers with pointer event handlers will address the main longstanding source of scroll-start jank we see on Android (irrespective of whatever scheduler improvements we're able to make to better prioritize input handling)...Pointer Events has pretty broad support, but we have some outstanding concerns with the existing API which probably cannot be addressed without a non-trivial breaking change. The key outstanding challenge is to try to identify a design which addresses our concerns without seriously breaking websites which support the existing API. We will of course work closely with the other vendors to try to find a design we can all agree to implement consistently." - Rick Byers, Chromium Team

Last year in December, we got a news tip that showed the plans for the series of new Android updates for Samsung smartphones. As per that the Note 5's Marshmallow update was pushed from Q4 2015 to Q1 2016. According our tipster during that time the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS pack was under testing. The official shipping was supposed to start in this quarter. Well, right now Samsung has made it official and they are rolling out the update to the unlocked S6 devices across the world and next in line are the carrier models.

 


The Korean tech giant has also revealed the featured packed in this update. The standard features like power-saving Doze option, the micro permission management, or the video sound speed adjustment will be there. In addition to these, Samsung has modified the user interface too. The notification bar region, which is one of the ugly looking feature of TouchWiz, will now sport a white theme. If we go by the words of the beta testers, it seems the user interface along with the keyboard have been improved in terms of responsiveness and speed.


Moreover they also providing latest Samsung Internet 4.0 browser and a very useful Cross App multi-window option for the chat sessions.

As you would expect, the Galaxy Note 8 is on top of the rumor news right now and we have another one for you today. The Note 8 was just spotted on HTML5 browser benchmarking site earlier and it looks as if the handset will indeed be sporting Android Nougat 7.1.1 just like everyone is anticipating.


Although the smartphone didn't exactly show up as the Galaxy Note 8, it wasn't hard to figure out given that the model number of the phone in question was SM-N950U. In the benchmarking test, the device scored 517 points, which is quite impressive once you consider that the highest theoretically possible score is 555 on the test. Samsung Internet 6.0 was used as the browser during the testing. More importantly, the SM-N950U was also running on Android version 7.1.1 Nougat.

spartan web browser

 

Surprisingly, The upcoming most-needed Project Spartan web browser by Microsoft will support Extensions, in the same way as Google Chrome. The development team behind Project Spartan has confirmed the news on Twitter.

 

Extensions will arrive to Project Spartan via a future update. Details on the nifty feature are yet to be revealed. Reportedly, Microsoft is reviewing options that will allow developers of Chrome extensions to port their creations to Spartan with no hassles. Such a move will help Microsoft quickly build a significant catalogue of extensions for its newly announced offspring.

Project Spartan is arguably as significant an announcement as Windows 10 itself. The browser will be part of the latest OS by Microsoft for both mobile and desktop devices.

Microsoft Edge

 

Today, during Windows Build conference, Microsoft has finally announced what it's going to call its new Web browser for Windows 10. This has been known so far as Project Spartan, but its official name will be "Microsoft Edge".

 

Edge will be the default browser in Windows 10, although a version of Internet Explorer will also be in there just for compatibility's sake.

 

Microsoft Edge

 

Microsoft Edge will work with Cortana in Windows 10, so for example you'll be able to say stuff like "Hey Cortana, open youmobile.org", and that will happen for you in Edge. The New Tab page has been redesigned and it uses Cortana too, showing you favorites, a search bar, featured apps, news stories relevant to you, weather info, stocks, and sports.

 

Extensions built for Google Chrome will be able to work in Edge with very minor modifications, it turns out. The same should be true for Firefox extensions too.
