Re: browser?
@thomas yep, I've used it a fair amount. I didn't expect this, but I really like the feature that lets you mark up and save webpages. When I heard about that in Microsoft's original announcement it just seemed like a nice-to-have, but I can see this as being a great tool for sharing notes with people. Overall, even though I was using it in preview, seems like Spartan is working pretty fast and functional so far.

Re: browser?
Yes, it works quite OK...but in the end it is just one more browser to run tests on. Testing against IE11, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox is already too much work. Rather than have yet one more newly invented wheel the web app folks would be much appreciative when vendors would

- adhere strictly to W3C standards without exception

- execute JS in the same way

I bet it would save the software industry billions and get vendors release good product faster. It used to be that IE was the odd one out, but lately it is Chrome that needs extra work.

Have you had a chance to play around with the new browser at all? I'm curious about it.
