Goodbye, Internet Explorer. Hello, Project Spartan.

While the codename is sure to be scrapped for something a little more marketing-friendly (New Internet Explorer?), Microsoft confirmed the leaked news that the browser in Windows 10 will indeed feature a brand new rendering engine and look, with a very minimal UI that makes the content the star of the show.

It’ll also pack in a couple of handy new features. There’s a note-taking mode, which lets you scribble on a webpage or insert comments with a keyboard, and then save or send that copy (you can also clip just a segment of the page).

You’ll also find a reading-friendly mode, which strips out the ads and navigation and just gives you text and pictures. It also has a reading list that transfers between devices and saves offline copies. In essence, Instapaper in your Windows browser.
