    The latest build 10049 has an early version of Spartan. I found it strange that when I enable the favorites bar, it shows what I had on my chrome install, not IE. The favorites bar is also cutoff. I think I was confused on the chrome thing*Redface

  2. Will Windows 10 have Internet Explorer?

    IE is still included in windows 10 BUT it is being retired and replaced with project spartan. Spartan is set to be the default browser in win 10 and it can import all of IE's favs bookmarks, etc.

    I suspect there will be some gowning pains in getting used to Spartan.

    I've got the same problem. Also there is no way, at least that I can see, to change the order of the favorites on the bar.

    Double sigh....

    It's buggy.. some times I can post here with it and then I can't. But it has promise.. but I want a save password and pin tabs.

    Yes, they seemed to be locked. I just used Kari's ESD to ISO to create and ISO. Going to clean install. I don't think it will fix Spartan though. They did say it was unfinished in all fairness. It does seem pretty quick.

    I'm finding that this browser is very fast and responsive, but I can't reorder my Favorites Bar. I just found on the Microsoft Community page for Insiders that "The ability to order and roam your favorites is not yet included in the initial preview of the Project Spartan browser."

    I can live with it for now.

    When you can't post try clicking in the reply box and hitting the enter key. Seems to work for me.

    I had to use the enter key trick before I could post a pic in the counting game.

  12. Tried a bit of browsing.
    Spartan just keeps suddenly shutting down.

    I also cannot find Internet Options in Spartan.

    Thanks for the tip.. I'll give it a shot. Heck at this point Spartan is good but if this fixes the issue then I can use is as my primary.

    That's where I found the settings.. no advanced yet. And so far the only plugin is Flash. It's still a bit buggy but it's making huge progress over the leak. *Smile
