Microsoft looking for people to test Edge (Project Spartan) browser

Microsoft wants people to test Edge (Project Spartan)... interested?

For users wanting to test Microsoft Edge (Project Spartan), it is now available in Windows 10 Technical Preview builds. The new Web browser will be available across all Windows 10 devices, and has been "built for the modern Web."

Features include built-in Cortana, inking capabilities to write or type directly on a page, distraction-free reading, and a custom-built rendering engine. Internet Explorer will be available in Windows 10, but Microsoft wants users to embrace Edge. IE will no longer be the default browser, as Edge looks to phase out IE.

Microsoft may face a difficult challenge convincing IE users to migrate to Edge - and lure Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera users to the browser. The company must offer some type of incentive to get users to give Edge a try, especially if they are familiar using other browsers.
