Microsoft took to the stage today at its headquarters in Redmond, Washington to talk about the next chapter of Windows 10. One of the new items that is shipping with the OS is a new browser that the company hopes will reinvigorate its place in the browser wars.

The browser is called Spartan, for now, as it is a project name and it will support a new rendering engine.

You can add comments to any webpage with a new notes feature, a clipping tool makes it easy to save content to OneNote.There is a reading mode with an integrating reading list that will save content for offline viewing too.

And of course, Cortana is built in to Spartan too; she can search for information and pull in relevant about the page you are on.

Microsoft said that there are other features in the works for the browser too but they are not ready to ship the browser to everyone at this time.
