A leaked copy of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Spartan browser, the successor of the notorious Internet Explorer browser, has been demonstrated in a video from a Microsoft enthusiasts site.
WinBeta, in a new video, demonstrated just how tightly integrated Cortana is to the new Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) browser. Cortana is the Windows maker’s very own personal assistant for Windows.
According to WinBeta’s Zac Bowden, the Cortana integration is one feature he was most struck with when it was previewed in the software giant’s Windows 10 event in January. Based on his latest piece about the intelligent personal assistant’s integration into Spartan, he seems pleasantly surprised about how it has been implemented on Spartan.
“The idea is simple, Cortana surfs the web with you, occasionally pulling in useful information that can help you out,” Bowden writes.
One way the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) intelligent assistant helps out on Spartan is aby providing useful relevant information to the user. However, Cortana isn’t obstructive as some may fear.
When called into action – either via clicking the prompt on the address bar that jumps up and down when she has more information about the site or when the user prompts her via the “ask Cortana” command in the right click context menu after highlighting a detail – Cortana springs to life via a dedicated sidebar that comes out of the right side of the window for Spartan.
On this sidebar are the information Cortana has on a site or on a particular search string. When a user clicks on one of these information, they are taken to a new tab that displays more in-depth material.
Another way Cortana interacts with the user in the new Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) browser is via the address bar. As an example, when Bowden typed “weather” into the address bar, Cortana displayed information about the weather in the area right from the address bar.
Microsoft is expected to release a Windows 10 preview which includes Spartan by the end of March.
By the end of 2014, Philippe Laffont’s Coatue Management increased its stake in Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) by a substantial 464% quarter over quarter to end the year with about 12.23 million shares.
