- Project Spartan browser and new rendering engine

Detailed information about all new features will be published shortly, stay tuned.
[UPDATE]: The update has been delayed because of an error in the database for provisioning record data. Microsoft needs 2 hours to fix the issue. The update should be live at 1 PM PT, 9 PM London
