    I think Project Spartan is a great new start for Microsoft. For me its unbelievably quick, nicely designed, and better than I expected it to be. I might even delete Firefox and/or Google the way Spartan is treating me. Has anyone else experienced the same thing? or do you think it still has a lot of work to do before it can compete with Google or even any other browser? Any thoughts and suggestions are welcomed.

    Same here! I am still waiting for it to mature a bit more (extensions) but the way its going, it seems like its gonna be one of the Big Boys (not that IE wasn't, but...). I would love if they added a feature to Force Sites to Use HTTPS (similar to the extension on Chrome and FireFox), please drop a vote here on UserVoice here (https://windows.uservoice.com/forums...s-to-use-https)

    Yup. It's my main browser on the Windows 10 tech preview :) I'm loving it! It's definitely fast! The Google Analytics website still doesn't work right on it though (It didn't on Internet Explorer either). I only open Firefox for Google Analytics. Spartan is great!

    Glad to hear others are enjoying it too. Even though its considered to be in beta and Microsoft is still adding features and customizations, its still pretty cool to use.

    Edited: Yea @TheMightyCraken it should defiantly have a feature to force HTTPS

    All quirks aside, I've been using Spartan reliably as my daily browser since it was included in the preview. The only reason I can't use it all the time is because Google's apps have problems on it.

    Problems with Google's apps? Ill have to check that out. Hopefully they could fix this before the final release. I haven't tested Spartan on any Google apps yet, but Microsoft should defiantly fix those if any.

    What if it's Google's issue? Microsoft can't fix that.

    I'm biased that it's an issue on Google's end, but I put a report with steps in Feedback anyways since Google's errors aren't very informative.

    I've got to say, Spartan's delivered my single most-missed feature about IE - "Close tabs to the right"
    Hallelujah!!!
    If I ever meet the dev responsible, I'll probably lick his/her face.

    On my many-hat kind of office job, one part that has really helped me are the web notes. I could be on a virtual or in-person meeting and just draw on their websites to discuss improvements. There are things that need to improve, but having that has saved tons of time.

    Not me. I like having my links down the left side of the browser like in Firefox. I will be glad when we can get some technical information about Windows 10 and it aps.

    I can handle the slowness. I can handle the mid-comment random page reloads. I can handle the lack of any indication of cursor/selection placement in the omnibar. I can even handle not using my regular password manager.
    But, for the love of God, I hope the next one has ALT+D​.

    True, I couldn't delete Google or Firefox because of the feature they both have, but I cant wait to see if Microsoft adds some features to Spartan. Every once in a while I like to see features on web browsers, but I mostly like them for the looks and speed.

    Slowness?? Uhhh, I had no trouble with Spartan. This new product Microsoft created is faster than light itself.

    Edited: From one of your posts Hotphil. "Lick his/her face"? I'm a little scared now.

    True, but Microsoft has plans to get rid of IE completely for Windows 10, Windows 7 & 8.1 (Since there gonna be eligible for upgrade)

    I like it as a Desktop browser a lot. However in tablet mode, give me the Modern Version of IE11 back.

    I'd love to be able to pin settings to the bar, similar to how you can choose which buttons to show on the settings bar in recent Firefox versions. And make custom keyboard shortcuts! I'm specifically interested in turning Flash on and off more easily.

    2 issues in the current build that are irking me. When ever I load a new page it is taking 6-10 seconds from when the page appears to when I can actually start scrolling the page. And.. most of the time I can't highlight the address bar to edit addresses or enter a new address. It would only let me click on the end of the address and then backspace it..

    Other then that it has been fairly decent.

    Yea that's one of the problems i had too, but after a little it went away. It'll highlight the address bar but then it'll go away like i never even highlighted it. Maybe a glitch or something Microsoft added but hopefully soon to fix for some people.
