There have been a lot of discussion on the new Apple OS X Lion, a lot of people compare it with Google Chrome OS. Just like what they did with iOS 5, OSX Lion is supposedly packed with more than 250 new features. Here are the notable features that it has to offer:
- Restart in Safari. Similar to Google Chrome OS, this is the stripped down browser safe mode.
- Multitouch gestures. Tap, scroll, pinch and swipe to browse around your Mac.
- Full Screen Apps. No more thumbnail sized windows which you have to drag around. Go Full screen with the new Apple OS X Lion.
- LaunchPad. Display all your apps in fullscreen. You can group and rearrange them all.
- Mission Control. Displays all your running apps and navigate your way around your Mac easily.
- Resume. Just like in the iOS, when you minimize the app, you can resume with what you were doing before minimizing. Now, you can do it here too. It’s perfect for restarting after installation and continue your work after.
- AutoSave and Locking. The OS autosaves so you don’t lose what you’re working on if anything was to go wrong. Also, locking certain files that you don’t want to be overwritten is useful.
- Air Drop. Transfer files from two computers via Wifi / adhoc (p2p), which removes the hassle of setting up connections or connecting it with wires.
- Mail. With iOS having a good email system, they’ve made it larger and fit in OSX Lion.
- And many many more… (250 new features)
Apple is really stepping it up into improving what they have, I’m really impressed with what they have to offer. I really can’t wait for it to be released in July, and hopefully I’m able to upgrade my system without any conflicts with any software that I’ve installed. Kudos to Apple for doing an impressive job on Apple OS X Lion.
