If you have not installed Windows 10 on your PC and still want to play with Microsoft’s new rendering engine (Edge) then here’s another option: grab a preview build of Windows Phone 10, which was just released.
However, in case you are wondering whether or not this build includes Spartan, it does not. Instead, just like in Windows 10, Internet Explorer is still a default web browser but with a new engine. On a positive note, IE will be replaced with Spartan in future builds.

After finding out the desktop market share numbers, let’s do the desktop!
Despite record iPhone sales, Safari continues to go the opposite direction, down from 43.76% to 43.20% (0.56 point decrease).

Your eyes are not deceiving you.
As Microsoft plans to reveal Windows 10 and likely Spartan to the world tomorrow, another leak has spoiled more fun.
According to the new report, Microsoft’s Spartan will be able to support Chrome extensions (whether natively or not it’s unknown). As a result, it should be able to quickly grow its extensions gallery without requiring developers to start coding from scratch.
Now here is something weird to kick start your day.
