SOUTHFIELD (CBS Detroit) – Microsoft’s new web browser in Windows 10 will have new features which are not found in the current Explorer, and even in other browsers, according to a report by The Verge.

The browser, which is code-named Spartan, will allow Windows 10 users to add notes to a web page with a stylus and send the notes, the story stated. Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage will be utilized for this service, according to the report, and the notes will be stored in the cloud.

The browser will also utilize Microsoft’s Cortana digital assistant with information about flights, hotel bookings, package tracking, and other data.

Spartan will reportedly also offer a new way to group tabs together; it will also be used as a browser on PCs, tablets, and phones; and will be the main browser in Windows 10.

Exact details about Windows 10, and functions of Spartan, may be released on Jan. 21.

Verge asked Microsoft for comment on its Windows 10 browser plans, but a spokesperson said the company has “nothing to share.”
