Microsoft today unveiled the new Spartan Browser during the Windows 10 even at its headquarters in Redmond, Washington.
We already know that Spartan will support extensions but Microsoft has also made its browser attractive for the developers. Spartan can use Chrome extensions because the way extensions have been implemented in the browser is very identical to that of Chrome which will make it a simple process for developers to make their extensions work on Spartan.

So Spartan users can go to Chrome Web Store and install extensions? I doubt it. :no:

Kinda funny how they decided to not use Blink but to make their own Trident compatible with their addons. Genius move. Depending on the speed (IE11 is already sexy as fuck in that regard, it only needs better font rendering for me at least) I might make the jump to Spartan.

I was kind of hoping that MS had finally migrated to WebKit...
