50 Random Observations on Mac OS 10.4 Tiger
Some observations on “the little things” that have changed in Apple’s new operating system. These are the things that really make a difference in your daily use of the machine after the initial wow-factor of the new big features have worn off.
One of my favorites is an Undo in text areas in Safari 2.0. A lot of CMS systems allow you to edit templates directly in a text area, and it’s very irritating that Safari has never let you undo any changes you make in a text area like every other browser. Now it does, and all is well. I just hope they fixed the other incredibly annoying bug that will scroll the text area all the way to the top if you switch to another tab and then back to the template or post that you were editing. ‘Cause that’s really annoying too.
The other cool one is: “I have 16,529 files on my computer that contain the word “the.” 16,530 now that I’ve saved this document. Spotlight results are updated instantly.”. That’s pretty amazing.
