Re: Looks Promising
I hope so, too. I personally loved the Web Note feature -- very useful for sharing pages with friends and coworkers, making plans, etc.

Re: Looks Promising
I have a tough time getting fired up about browsers, but web note does seem like it might be very useful in a few situations. I wonder about the reading view, though -- most web ads don't bother me, and the few sites with really obnoxious ads I suspect won't support this feature.

Re: reading view, you're right. It doesn't work for a lot of major media outlets - InformationWeek, for example, doesn't support it. But it is pretty handy for blogs and such. It doesn't just weed out ads, it takes out unnecessary images as well.

Re: Looks Promising
@shakeeb we will; Spartan (or whatever Microsoft decides to call it) will be the go-to browser for Windows 10 on desktop and mobile devices. Hopefully we see the next mobile build rolling out soon, though I can't say with certainty whether that version will include Spartan or not.
