We detailed rumors of Microsoft’s upcoming version of Internet Explorer yesterday and today, we have screenshots of what it will look like. Chinese blog Cnbeta published screenshots of the upcoming browser, codenamed Spartan.

The screenshots don’t reveal much about Spartan but it looks completely different from the current version of Internet Explorer. Spartan will also feature flat design that finally matches the Windows “Modern UI” found in the Start Menu.

The biggest news about Spartan is that you’ll be able to talk to the browser. Microsoft is bringing its Cortana digital voice assistant over to the browser to help you search the web and perform tasks like adding reminders. You can also look forward to grouped tabs which will make finding articles much easier.

Microsoft is expected to reveal more about Windows 10 and Spartain during its event on January 21st.
