Windows 10 will ship with two web browsers

When Windows 10 launches later this year, it’ll include a new web browser designed to run on phones, tablets, notebooks, or desktops. Code-named Project Spartan, the new browser is a Universal Windows App, and it includes new features include support for annotating web pages and integration with the Cortana personal assistant feature of Windows. But Spartan won’t be the only web browser included with Windows 10. Microsoft says the next-gen version of its desktop operating system will also include Internet Explorer. That’s because there may be some users that need to access websites that use custom ActiveX controls, Browser Helper Objects, or other features that are only available to Internet Explorer users. Rather than force developers of those web apps to update their software before the year is out (and risk having users decide not to upgrade to Windows 10 when developers fail to do so), Microsoft is including IE in Windows 10 for users that still need it. The Spartan web browser has an entirely new rendering engine, but it can also load the Internet Explorer 11 engine for older websites that might not be optimized for Spartan and other web browsers. Interestingly, the version of Internet Explorer that ships with Windows 10 will also use dual rendering engines: it will also be able to use the Spartan engine to render web content...For more turn to our forum.

Windows 10 is free for lifetime of device

Microsoft announced earlier today that Windows 10 would be free for all Windows 7 users and Windows 8.1 users within the first year of Windows 10's launch. This is excellent news, as it means there's no excuse for users running the older operating systems to upgrade. However, it appears there is some confusion as to whether users who upgraded will need to pay after that year. Gabe Aul on Twitter has confirmed that those who update to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 will receive Windows 10 for the lifetime of their device, meaning you don't need to pay yearly or monthly fee after that first year is up. So yes, everyone can relax and look forward to updating to Windows 10 when it launches later this year. Now, that doesn't mean new customers won't have to pay for Windows 10. Right now, it only looks like Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users will get a free pass to Windows 10. New customers coming from other operating systems may have to pay for a license, or perhaps Microsoft is planning a subscription based module for Windows 10? Windows 10 will run on all device form factors, including PC, tablet, phone, Xbox and big screen displays. The company earlier today unveiled a number of new OS features, including Spartan, Cortana, and more, which will be available to Windows Insiders over the next few months...More encouraging news on this upcoming OS can be found at windows8newsinfo forum.

Windows crosses landmark build number

For decades, Microsoft has been compiling builds of Windows with a continuous count for version control and as of today, the version number has crossed 10,000, according to sources who are close to Microsoft. This does not necessarily mean that 10,000 builds of Windows have been compiled as the company will jump version numbers around major releases but this does mean that new builds of Windows 10 going forward, will have 10XXX version numbers. This is a big milestone ahead of the company's press event, which takes place tomorrow at its campus in Redmond, Washington, that will be packed with new features coming to the Windows platform. Microsoft is expected to release a new build for the Windows Insider program that will incorporate updates to the OS - but don't expect all features that are shown off tomorrow to make their way into the next build that is publicly released. The rolling over across the 10,000 count is a bit symbolic too as Windows 10 is an ambitious release for Microsoft, impacting not only the desktop, but phones, tablets, and even Xbox too. Some of you may be familiar with that keeps an unofficial track of all the builds compiled and you will notice that the last compilation was 9925, so this is a jump of 75 builds...Here at windows8newsinfo forum we will be following tomorrows event and reporting back to you our members.

Windows 10 Build 9924

Number, numbers everywhere! Microsoft regularly compiles all manner of builds, but this new one, Windows 10 build 9924 is special as it has just been finished ahead of a high profile event. Yes, the January 21 gathering at Redmond headquarters. Where the company is expected to launch JTP, the January Technical Preview version of its upcoming operating system. Little is known about what build number JTP will arrive with once it gets the green light for Windows Insider later this week. But as shown here, the “awesome” branch got another new addition recently, with version 9924 being officially added not too long ago. While it does reveal that Microsoft continues to compile new Windows 10 versions, adding features and squashing bugs as often as possible, it is still not clear that this is the one that will be shipped to users in just a few days. Since the January Technical Preview is expected to include many consumer oriented features, the software titan probably wants to provide as advanced an experience as possible. There’s also the matter of the Consumer Preview, which many expect will go live in a few months from now at BUILD 2015. The dates for that anticipated event have been set for between April 29 and May 1, just for the record...Follow this and all other builds at windows8newsinfo forum.

Spartan Is Actually Internet Explorer 12

Well, that’s a shock, is it not? Microsoft is apparently not yet ready to give up on the IE name, and according to one analyst, the codename Spartan is actually just that. A codename for version 12 of Internet Explorer. We’ve all heard that Redmond is currently working on a new browser that will be bundled with Windows 10, and this new solution is believed to represent a completely new beginning for Microsoft in a market where some users still have negative perception with the IE brand. Anyway, Rob Enderle, the principle analyst at Enderle Group thinks that Spartan will not be used as a name for the final product — the Internet Explorer moniker is here to stay for the foreseeable future. He is, however, sure that Microsoft will unveil this new solution at the upcoming January 21 event in Redmond next week. Internal sources have hinted that the software titan has at least juggled with the idea of changing the name of its web browser, and if this is to happen, then Spartan is the perfect point to just do it...With January rapidly approaching windows8newsinfo forum will posting all breaking news we can find to keep you updated on this exciting new browser.

Obama’s proposed hacking law

Next week, Obama is expected to unveil an update to the US’ CFAA law against hacking in a State of the Union address, hot on the tail of Sony’s massive hacking attack that unfolded in late 2014. A draft version of the new law has been published on the White House website and gives us a look into a scary future in which clicking a single link could make you complicit in committing a hacking crime. A letter accompanying the proposal dated January 13 introduces the new law to Congress for discussion. Remember when Sony wanted to sue Twitter (and individual users) who posted screenshots or links to its stolen data? According to Errata Security, these new laws could pin you as a “racketeer” who willingly participated in hacking if you were one of those users (or if you clicked one of those links); punishable by up to 10 years in jail. Didn’t click a link? There’s plenty of other ways you could be in legal trouble; Errata points out that something as trivial as being in an IRC channel where others are discussing a hack or having an online conversation with a “hacker” could make you a member of a “criminal enterprise” which would allow the FBI to confiscate all your electronics. The above piece of legislation also could cover data like email address and password dumps that might be found on services like Pastebin...Get the details by visiting windows8newsinfo forum.

New details surrounding Microsoft’s Spartan browser have surfaced on the internet indicating that the new browser may set new standards in internet browsing. Microsoft Corporation’s upcoming internet browser, dubbed "Spartan" has started to gain attention as more details about the browser’s features have begun to surface on the internet. Spartan will be one of the major elements of Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 operating system and is set to adopt a variety of enhanced features that are currently not present in competing browsers such as Google Inc.’s Chrome. According to a report by the The Verge, people close to the matter have said that the Spartan web browser will be heavily linked to Microsoft’s Cortana digital assistant. Moreover, current features that work with Bing in Internet Explorer will start using the Cortana interface in Spartan. Microsoft has already revealed that Cortana will form an integral part of the Windows 10 operating system. Cortana will allow users to search the web directly and access information such as flight details, hotel bookings directly from the new tab interface being touted for Spartan. A separate feature of Spartan allows the grouping of tabs in order avoid the general untidiness associated with numerous tabs in the browser. The tabs can be grouped together according to a user’s preferences, for instance users can have one group for work related tabs while the others grouped under leisure...For more visit our forum.

In the past couple of days, we are starting to receive more information about the new web browser codenamed ‘Spartan’ Microsoft is building for Windows 10. Today, the Verge reported some new features that will be part of the Spartan web browser. Some of them are not yet available on any other web browser in the market. Find the summary of features that will be included in Spartan. Remember the Courier tablet video? An user can annotate a webpage or clip a webpage by marking it with stylus and share it with others. Spartan will include the same level of inking support that allows users to annotate a web page with a stylus and send the notes and annotations to a friend or colleague. Notes will be stored in user’s OneDrive and can be access from anywhere. As annotations are shared, multiple users can doodle on a web page and share edits and annotations between groups. Yes, previous reports on Spartan browser were correct. It will have Cortana integration. Since Cortana will surface information on flights, hotel bookings, package tracking, and other data, when a user tried to search something related to it, Cortana will directly provide the answer. Example: If you use Cortana to track a particular flight and start to search for “American Airlines” in the browser address bar, it will automatically display tracked flights and allow Spartan users to view the status of the flight directly...Have the need for moe on Spartan and Windows 10, visit windows8newsinfo forum.
