During last week’s big event, Microsoft also revealed new information about the upcoming Internet browser, Project Spartan. There’s quite a bit of new features and improvements (both technical and design), and if you are running the latest Windows 10 Technical Preview build – number 9926 on my ultrabook – then you can try out the new rendering engine with this trick:

  1. Open up IE 11 and type about:flags in the address bar.
  2. Switch “Enable Experimental Web Platform Features” from Automatic to Enabled.
  3. Apply changes and restart the browser.


Several browser tests already show significant performance boosts in favor of the new engine, and so far I haven’t had any stability issues with it either, so there’s really no reason not to enable it already!
