Browsing the Web in ‘Private Mode’ is not as private as you think.
Microsoft has patched the Private Browsing Leakage bug in its newest Edge browser with the latest update.
When we talk about Browsers, only one thing which does not strike our mind is Internet Explorer or IE.

Voice recognition has been a major area of development across the industry in the last few years and Microsoft look to continue that momentum with further integration of its voice activated assistant Cortana.
In Windows 10, Cortana will be your go to assistant for finding files and information both on your device and online. The smart technology also allows you to use real language to find what you are looking for or complete tasks.

It’s not hard to imagine how this implementation of Cortana edges us closer to an interactive, responsive and voice activated operating system that intelligently understands our needs.

Project Spartan is a brand new browser been built from the ground up with speed and performance in mind. Optimized for the rich media environment of the modern web, the new browser could very well be a must have for surf addicts.

The traditional, PC, software market was essentially a free for all with no authority acting as quality control. The shift towards one central app store, will help Microsoft to curb the malware so often distributed online.
