    I know Spartan hasn't been officially announced yet but I'm quite fond of the name and ran across this UserVoice suggestion which I fully support!

    If you like the name Spartan as well then go vote! Hopefully Microsoft will listen to us again like they did for keeping Cortana's name.

    Eh, I don't know. Spartan sounds like kind of a weird name for a browser to me. Whatever they decide, hopefully it's good.

    Does firefox and Opera sound like perfect (non-weird) name for browsers to you?

    Spartan sounds good to me. At least it doesn't have 6 syllables! ;)

    I think Spartan would be absolutely brilliant as it continues leveraging of the Halo franchise within Microsoft's ecosystem. Imagine, a sophisticated browser named Spartan with Cortana integration.. Massive Win!!!

    Would make a ton of sense considering that it will have Cortana integration. xD
    @Stefan Holder's got the same idea. xD

    The name "Spartan" sounds completely like a code name and I expect them to change it. However, I honestly think it would be a good name to stick with. I'd be interested to see what Microsoft ends up doing, if they try to tie it into the whole "One" thing, but "OneBrowser" sounds terrible ;).

    On a side note, am I the only one who thinks Spartan looks TERRIBLE? It in no way mimics the modern, square design language. It looks like an awful combo of Chrome and Firefox from like 2010. It needs to be flatter and squarer. Even the non metro IE looks loads better than Spartan. The closer we are to the real Windows 10, the more worried I am of everything (mainly all the OS's) coming in and being a complete cluterf**k, and Spartan isn't helping.

    Have you seen it? It's not very square and certainly not flat

    Not exactly. It still has that "raised" feel that Chrome and Firefox has. IE on 8.1 looks much more flat. The "metro" IE is the definition of flat, and I think that's something they need to work off of

    and where exactly do you see a single curve in that image? are you talking about the refresh button? the 3 dots? that is about as square as you can get without creating entirely new standards for icons (which is not worth it)

    The way everything is laid out, it has that "raised" feel which in turn, makes it look less square. Have you ever seen Google Chrome OS? That is the design language it's giving off (with a mix of Android). Not Windows. I'm not a fan.

    I still see nothing like chrome on it.
